event

As of 12:01 a.m. on April 3, the order will see all of the provinces move into another lockdown known as “emergency break lockdown” under Ontario’s COVID-19 response framework.

This morning I woke up to an alarming response of questions and I sourced this information for the industries I operate in:

Organized public events and social gatherings

  • Indoor organized public events and social gatherings are not allowed, except with members of the same household (the people you live with).

  • Individuals who live alone and single parents may consider having exclusive, close contact with another household to help reduce the negative impacts of social isolation.

  • Outdoor organized public events and social gatherings must comply with public health advice on physical distancing and have no more than 5 people.
