Ontario has announced a three-step plan to reopen the province, starting with outdoor recreational amenities, as it gradually prepares to ease pandemic restrictions. As of May 22, outdoor recreational amenities – like golf courses and tennis courts – will be allowed to reopen, the government said. Outdoor limits for social gatherings and organized public events will be expanded on Saturday, which will allow these amenities to be used by up to five people. These amenities include driving ranges, soccer and other sports fields, tennis and basketball courts, and skate parks. No outdoor sports or recreational classes are permitted. “Today, we’re seeing increasingly positive trends and key public health indicators,” Premier Doug Ford said. “As a result, we’re now in a position to look at a slow and measured reopening of the province, and working in lockstep with our public health officials.” The government said step one of the three-tier plan will likely begin on the week of June 14. The Ford government said they will confirm the start date closer to that week. The province will remain in each step for at least 21 days to monitor the impacts on case numbers as restrictions are relaxed.
