Ontario will enter Step 3 of the province’s economic reopening plan ahead of schedule on July 16 which will see indoor dining resume and allow for gyms and movie theatres to reopen.
There will be no capacity or table limits for indoor dining when the move is made – but social distancing rules will remain in place and masks will remain mandatory.
Outdoor social gatherings and organized public events with up to 100 people will be allowed as well as indoor social gatherings and organized public events with up to 25 people.
“Thanks to the tireless efforts of our frontline heroes, and the ongoing commitment of Ontarians to get vaccinated, we have surpassed the targets we set to enter Step Three of our Roadmap,” said Premier Doug Ford.
“While this is welcome news for everyone who wants a return to normal, we will not slow down our efforts to fully vaccinate everyone who wants to be and put this pandemic behind us once and for all.”
Gyms, movie theatres, museums and zoos would all be allowed to operate at a 50 per cent capacity.
Outdoor non-seated events of up to 5,000 people will be allowed. Outdoor seated events will have a capacity of 15,000 people.
Indoor events will be allowed at 50 per cent capacity with a limit of 1,000 people. Nightclubs could operate at a capacity of 250 people or 25 per cent.
There will be no restrictions on retail or personal care as long as social distancing is in place.
Chief medical officer of health Dr. Kieran Moore says some restrictions, like face coverings, will remain mandatory.
“We will continue to evaluate the requirement and need for indoor face coverings on an ongoing basis,” said Moore. “Physical distancing requirement will remain in place for Step 3 but it is an exciting day for Ontario.”
