Province Re-Opening Plan - Step 2 Has Been Moved Up To Begin
on June 30th

As of June 22nd, more than 13 million doses of COVID-19 vaccines had been given out in the province. About 76.5 percent of adults have had at least one dose, while nearly 26 percent of Ontarians 12 and older have had both shots.

This second stage further loosens public health restrictions:
  • indoor, masked social gatherings of up to five people allowed. 
  • up to 25 people would be able to attend outdoor functions, while as many as six people could dine together on a patio.
  • personal care services like hairstylists and nail salons would also reopen, as long as masks are worn at all times.
  • capacity limits on essential retail will move to 50 percent, up from 25 percent in Step 1, while non-essential retail capacity increases to 25 percent, as opposed to 15 percent.
We are committed to our part in limiting the spread of COVID-19. As an essential service, we have remained open and active, delivering all programs with the expectation of all inside, in-person Health and Wellness Programs including exercise and falls prevention classes, foot care clinics, blood pressure clinics and social drop-in groups.

With the lifting of restrictions, we are now able to offer the following in-person, outdoor exercise classes with all capacity and COVID safety protocols in place: Pole Walking, Walking Groups, Exercise, Yoga, Zumba.
Check our Outdoor Schedule to see what is available in your community. Use this link here.

Our thrift and vintage stores are also able to open with limited capacity, please check with the local offices to ensure store hours linked here.

Step 3 in the province's re-opening plan is scheduled to occur on July 23rd, so more news to come!
