Ontario to release plan for moving past its framework of COVID-19 pandemic restrictions's Profile


TORONTO — Ontario is set to release its plan today for how the province will move beyond current COVID-19 public health restrictions.

The province paused plans in mid-August to exit Step 3 of its reopening framework as fourth-wave cases were rising.

Now, the seven-day average of daily COVID-19 case counts is stable, nearly 88 per cent of eligible Ontarians have received at least one dose of a vaccine and proof of vaccination is required to access several venues, including restaurants, cinemas and event spaces.

Premier Doug Ford has said the new plan would include how and when to lift more public health measures, including restrictions on restaurants.

He has said it will provide a long-term vision, and will involve applying any new restrictions in tailored and localized ways, with the aim of avoiding further lockdowns.
