COVID-19 hotspots will revert to a modified Stage 2
Saturday, October 10, 2020 at 12:01 am

TORONTO -- Ontario is now urging people across the province to stay home except for essential purposes and has announced the three COVID-19 hotspots will revert to a modified Stage 2, which means the closure of indoor dining, gyms and movie theatres.
Effective 12:01 a.m. on Oct. 10, a number of new measures will be implemented in Toronto, Peel Region and Ottawa, which includes the shutdown of indoor dining and gyms for the next 28 days.
The indoor dining restriction applies to restaurants, bars and other food and drink establishments, including nightclubs and food courts in malls.
Indoor gyms and fitness centres, including yoga studios and dance studios will also be closed in these regions. Cinemas, casinos, bingo halls and other gaming establishments are also required to close.
As of Oct. 13, weddings in Ontario will be forced to comply with updated public health measures, which limit 10 people indoors and 25 people outdoors.
Schools and daycare centres will remain open across the province without any changes.
"Limit trips outside of home, except for essential purposes only such as work where it is not possible to work from home, school, grocery shopping, medical appointments, and outdoor healthy physical activity," the government said Friday.
Health officials are asking that people do not travel to other regions in the province, especially from higher transmission areas to lower transmission areas, unless it is for essential purposes.
The government says if current trends continue, the province could experience "worst-case scenarios" seen in northern Italy and New York City earlier in the pandemic.
