As of today, Ontario has entered the third and final stage of its novel coronavirus reopening plan. This means gyms, indoor dining, nightclubs, and other venues can resume after being closed for months. There will still be masks required and capacity limits will increase but not to 100 per cent.
Limits on social gatherings will increase to 25 people indoors and 100 people outdoors. To reach this phase, Ontario needed 70-80 percent of adults to be injected with at least one dose of a Canada Health-approved vaccine. They also wanted at least 25 per cent of people to have two doses. This threshold was passed weeks ago as currently, 79 per cent of adults have one dose and more than 59 per cent have two.
Officials also wanted to see other health indicators, such as low case counts and fewer ICU occupants. Yesterday, the province only reported 143 new cases of COVID-19, making it a full week of daily case counts under 200. Step 3 will last at least 3 weeks and until more than 80 per cent of individuals, 12 and up have at least one dose. 75 per cent of that population should have two doses as well.
