Closures and reopenings have become the norm in the COVID-19 pandemic life in Toronto.
As of March 8, Toronto returns to the provincial reopening framework in the Gray category (lockdown).
Although the revised gray area allows for more flexible restrictions than previous renderings, closures are still in place in the category:
• Indoor gatherings will not be allowed, except with members of one’s own household (those who live alone may choose to have contact with another person).
• Outdoor gatherings will be limited to a maximum of 10 people.
• Weddings, funerals and other religious services will be limited to 10 people indoors or 10 people outdoors (with physical distance).
• Non-essential retail will open with a 25 percent capacity limit. However, supermarkets, grocery stores, drugstores, hardware stores, liquor stores, security stores and convenience stores will be able to operate at 50% capacity.
• Dining establishments are closed for indoor dining, but are allowed to serve customers on patios as long as they are members of the same household with exemptions for people living alone and caregivers.
• Personal care services will be closed.
• Indoor sports and recreational facilities will be closed (some exceptions can be made)
