Ontario will enter Step 2 of the province’s three-step COVID-19 reopening plan at 12:01 a.m. on June 30, the province confirmed on Thursday.
“Because of the tireless work of our health care heroes, and the record setting success of our vaccine rollout, we are able to move into Step Two ahead of schedule on June 30 with the support of our public health experts” Premier Doug Ford said in a statement.
“We are proceeding safely with the re-opening of our province and will continue to work around the clock until the job is done.”
The move means barbers and salons will be able to open two days earlier than expected. Capacity limits for retail stores and patios have also expanded. Outdoor gathering capacity will increase to 25 people while indoor gatherings will be allowed with up to five people.
