Government officials have announced they’re lifting several of the province’s COVID-19 restrictions at 11:59 p.m. Wednesday, allowing many activities that have been off-limits since December – and in some cases, much longer – to resume.
Bars and nightclubs will reopen, with patrons dancing and mingling between tables. Organized events such as wedding and funeral receptions will move back indoors. And all of those businesses and venues will be operating at full capacity, along with movie theatres, performance spaces and sports arenas.
Officials are also removing limits on household gatherings – allowing hosting at home to “return to normal,” according to the province’s plans.
Masks will remain mandatory at indoor public spaces and proof of vaccination will continue to be required for many discretionary activities.
