Reopening Our Province - Stage 2
Today (Monday, June 8, 2020), our government announced that we’re getting more people back to work and more recreational activities open by moving forward with a regional approach to Stage 2 of reopening the province.
In consultation with the Chief Medical Officer of Health and local health officials, the government is easing restrictions in communities where it is safe to do so, based on trends of key public health indicators such as lower rates of transmission, increased capacity in hospitals, and progress made in testing.
Effective Friday, June 12, 2020 at 12:01 a.m. the province will increase the limit on social gatherings from five to 10 people across the province, regardless of whether a region has moved to Stage 2.
HKPR Health Unit and Peterborough Public Health are moving into Stage 2. For a full list of businesses and services reopening in Stage 2, visit: https://www.ontario.ca/page/reopening-ontario-whats-each-stage#s-31
In addition, Attorney General Doug Downey has announced new actions our government is taking to support the businesses and workers who have built Ontario’s vibrant hospitality sector. To help this important segment of the economy hard hit by the COVID-19 outbreak, we have made changes to allow restaurants and bars to temporarily add or increase the size of their patios once they are permitted to welcome patrons on-site.
Full details regarding this action to support local restaurants, bars and establishments are available here : www.agco.ca/blog/alcohol/jun-2020/ontario-extending-outdoor-patios-allow-social-distancing-during-covid-19
Please share this information with fellow businesses and organizations.
