Ontario is transitioning into the next step of its reopening plan today. The top doctor in the province said he would rather wait a full 21 days before taking away any more restrictions. Dr. Keiran Moore said yesterday at a briefing that “The two- to three-week cycle is very important to maintain so that we do the opening of Ontario in a stepwise manner,”.
This was Moore’s first pandemic briefing since officially taking the role as Ontario’s chief medical officer. The province has already met its vaccination targets for entering stage 2 which will allow various outdoor activities and indoor services such as personal care. As of Tuesday, there is more than 77 per cent of people in Ontario with one dose of a vaccine and at least 37 per cent are fully vaccinated.
Ontario dedicated 21 days between each step of reopening but stage 2 was moved up by a few days based on vaccination efforts and other positive virus trends. Technically, the province already passed the goal set for entering the third step of reopening which would allow for more indoor gatherings.
