The Ontario government said it will gradually ease public health measures that have been in place to stop the spread of the Omicron variant. In a news conference Thursday, Premier Doug Ford announced the province’s approach to reducing the number of restrictions. It originally took effect on January 5 when the Premier said it will be “cautious and gradual.”
The province explained the reopening will take place over the span of three months with 21 days between each stage. On January 31, social gatherings will be increased to 10 people indoors and 25 people outdoors. Sporting events, concert venues, and theatres will operate at 50 per cent or 500 people. Restaurants, bars, and other food or drink establishments without dance directions will be able to operate at 50 per cent indoor capacity.
Also, recreational amenities and amusement parks can operate with 50 per cent capacity indoors. On February 21, social gathering limits will increase to 25 people indoors and 100 people outdoors. Capacity limits will be lifted completely in indoor spaces where proof of vaccination is required.
