There are currently 74 people hospitalized.
The city continues to advise residents to adhere to the advice of Toronto Public Health, which includes practicing physical distancing, staying in your social circle of up to 10 people, washing their hands often and wearing a mask or face covering when required.
And, this weekend, residents should keep their distance in parks or beaches, while remembering that bonfires, trash, barbecues, hibachi grills, and parties involving “binge drinking.” are not authorized.
“If a trash can is full, residents are asked to take their waste with them so that they can be properly disposed of,” the statement said.
The city received 46 complaints related to park use and physical distancing on Thursday, with officers warning nearly 1,300 people this month about distance, alcohol, bonfires and administrative regulations.
It is also important to note that in food and beverage establishments, additional requirements to protect the health and safety of customers are now in effect.
This includes making sure that all customers remain seated except when entering or leaving, using the restroom, or paying the bill.
Customers can also expect to be asked for basic personal information, as these establishments are now required to keep customer logs containing the names and contact details of each party.
