Further Re-Opening on June 30

Ontario is moving the next stage of its re-opening plan ahead by two days, to Wednesday June 30, reflecting the very positive trends in both vaccinations and reduced COVID counts. The change means you can finally get a haircut and can get together with a larger group of friends. Some of the most notable changes:

  • Barbers, hair salons and other personal care businesses can open with 25% capacity. Masks are required at all times.

  • The size of groups on patios and sidewalk cafes increases from four to six; those in the same household have no restriction on numbers. Outdoor karaoke is permitted.

  • Outdoor gatherings for up to 25 people are allowed.

  • Indoor gatherings with those outside your household are permitted up to a maximum of five people.

  • Indoor shopping at non-essential businesses increases to 25% capacity; stores in malls can open; essential retail can now operate at 50% capacity.

  • Indoor religious services and ceremonies such as funerals and weddings move to 25% capacity. Outdoor services are limited only by physical distancing requirements.

  • Outdoor sports leagues can begin

  • Outdoor meeting and event spaces can open with 25% capacity
