TORONTO, ON – The Government of Ontario has announced that Stage 2 of its COVID-19 economic relaunch – including the partial reopening of breweries and other food and drink establishments – will be rolling out in Toronto and Peel Region later this week.
As part of Stage 2 of the Reopening Ontario plan, restaurants, bars, food trucks, wineries, breweries and distilleries can start offering service on patios or other outdoor seating areas as long as sufficient physical distancing and cleanliness guidelines are in place.
Businesses in many regions of the province have been allowed to reopen over the last two weeks, but some areas have been excluded due to not meeting the required criteria.
On Wednesday June 24th, Stage 2 reopenings will be allowed to take place in Toronto and Peel Region, leaving Windsor-Essex County as the only region of the province remaining in Stage 1. COVID-19 trends in that area will continue to be monitored, and reopening will proceed once it is deemed safe to do so.
For more information, including details on all businesses and services that are allowed to reopen as part of Stage 2, see the full list on the Government of Ontario website.
