Ontario is planning to expand capacity limits inside professional sports venues on Saturday. The Rogers Centre will be allowed 30,000 fans and the Scotiabank Arena will let nearly 10,000 fans, according to CTV News Toronto. The sources confirming this news were from the government and were announced before the Chief Medical Officer of Health D. Kieran Moore made his announcement.
As of right now, outdoor sports venues are limited to 15,000 fans or 75 per cent of pre-COVID-19 capacity. Indoor sports venues such as the Scotiabank Arena are limited to 1,000 or 50 per cent of pre-COVID-19 capacity. Starting Saturday, those capacity limits will be increased substantially.
The Toronto Blue Jays announced on Thursday that they would sell more tickets for the final six games of the regular season. They also stopped unvaccinated fans from spectating even if they show proof of a negative COVID-19 test. With the new rules, the Rogers Centre could allow up to 30,000 spectators and the Scotiabank Arena, an indoor venue, could allow 9,900 fans.
