After closing many businesses following the outbreak of COVID-19 in Ontario, Premier Doug Ford has begun its plans to reopen stage 3 of the province. Ontario entered Stage 1 of the reopening plan in May and then Stage 2 in June and early July. The report is expected to be released during Ford’s daily press briefing at Queen’s Park.
This reopening will allow all businesses to reopen under strict measures. The businesses expected to reopen include gyms, bars, fitness studios, indoor dining, casinos, and amusement parks. Reports explain that Ontario will enter Stage 3 through a regional approach like it did when entering Stage 2.
The cases of coronavirus have significantly reduced in the province. On Sunday, 129 new COVID-19 cases were reported bringing the provincial total to 36,723. Health Minister Christine Elliott said Sunday Hospitalizations, ICU admissions had both decreased with the number of vented patients being relatively stable.
