Ontario has been in stage 3 of the provincial plan to reopen COVID-19 since July 16.
The province will remain in Stage 3 for at least 21 days, or until key public health indicators are met. This includes having 75% of Ontarians aged 12 and over fully immunized.
Chief Medical Officer of Health Dr Kieran Moore said once these criteria are met, the “vast majority” of public health and workplace safety measures can be lifted.
Nowadays, Ontario has seen 549,328 cases of COVID-19.
