As a reminder from our newsletter yesterday, it was  announced  that a number of regions in Ontario, including ours, will be moving into  Stage 3  effective 12:01am on Friday July 17, 2020. As part of the Stage 3 reopening, nearly all businesses and public spaces can reopen with public health and safety restrictions in place. There are some  businesses and activities that will remain closed  in Stage 3 until a plan to safely resume operations has been approved by health experts. In addition to the reopening of businesses, Stage 3 will also include indoor gathering limits increasing to a maximum of 50 people and the outdoor gathering limits increasing to a maximum of 100 people with physical distancing still being maintained. For more information about this next stage of reopening, including which businesses are allowed to reopen and exceptions to Stage 3 reopening, please visit the Government of Ontario’s site outlining  Stage 3 reopening .
