Ontario plans to lift all COVID-19 restrictions by the end of March |  Coronavirus: Ontario

Adopted public health measures such as vaccination certificate are exceptional measures, Said Premier Doug Ford. We told them that they would stay longer than necessary and that they would be fired when it was safe to do so.

The government monitors various indicators, such as hospital admissions and the emergence of new variants, to see if planned relaxations are implemented. Doug Ford wants to avoid the new general regulation at all prices.

The step-by-step approach will protect our health care system, prevent large-scale lockdowns, keep schools open and help the economy recover, Said Health Minister Christine Elliott.

Ontario Diagnosis Plan

  • October 25, 2021: Abolition of capacity limits (restaurants, bars, gyms)
  • November 15, 2021: Capacity restrictions lifted (weddings, nightclubs, dance bars)
  • January 17, 2022: Vaccination passport expires in restaurants, bars and gyms
  • March 28, 2022: End of masking (with a few exceptions)

If the condition worsens in one area, health measures may be imposed locally. Extraordinary circumstances can still justify the imposition of sanctions at the provincial level, especially if the health care system is overcrowded.

In the immediate aftermath, the Ontario government on Monday lifted restrictions on the number of clients allowed in most companies that require proof of vaccination. These include restaurants, bars, bingo halls, casinos and places where people train and exercise, which are yet to be filled.

From Monday the training rooms will not be limited to 50% of the number of clients.

Places such as grocery stores and health facilities are not on this list, however, places that provide essential services do not require proof of vaccination.

It will no longer be required by the end of March in final category venues such as concert halls, cinemas and convention centers.
