As Ontario prepares to exit its “reopening roadmap,” the Ford government has announced new details, including which restrictions will remain in place. On Friday, Premier Ford’s government outlined what Ontarians can expect in the weeks ahead. The province is currently in Step 3 of their “reopening roadmap,” which allows essentially all businesses to open their doors, albeit with reduced capacity. A spokesperson for Health Minister Christine Elliott announced on Friday, however, that “upon exiting the roadmap, the vast majority of public health measures, including capacity limits, will be lifted.” While most restrictions will be lifted, the wearing of masks in indoor public settings will continue. “As the Delta variant is the dominant strain in Ontario,” the spokesperson said, “face coverings will also continue to be required for indoor public settings.” According to CTV News, Ontario’s health ministry justified the decision to keep mask requirements in place by saying that it “is consistent with other jurisdictions,” and in line with updated CDC Guidance.
