As of Wednesday June 24th, here’s what’s allowed to reopen in Toronto and Peel Region in Stage 2 of the COVID-19 economic recovery plan:
Hair salons may reopen, along with estheticians and salons offering manicures and pedicures. (Restrictions include any services that tend to a customer’s face, including facials, eyebrow grooming and makeup.)
House-sitters may resume work and so can personal trainers and sports trainers, outside of gyms only.
Restaurants, bars, food trucks, wineries, breweries and distilleries may open for dining in outdoor areas only, including patios, curbside, parking lots and adjacent premises. While patrons may walk through the interior to pick up food, use the washroom or access the patio.
Shopping centres, malls and markets may open.
All indoor and outdoor swimming pools, outdoor splash pads and wading pools will be opened.
Change rooms and showers may or may not be open, depending on whether operators can keep the areas adequately sanitized and disinfected.
Film and television production may resume, along with photography services and tour guide services.
Outdoor activities like paintball and mini golf may resume.
Weddings and funerals may resume, with limits on indoor venues of 30 percent capacity and 50 people outdoors.
Libraries may reopen with limited services and community centres may reopen but with limited or modified programming.
Museums, galleries, aquariums and zoos may reopen.
