Enforcement of Mandatory Closures & Restrictions

Enforcement of Mandatory Closures & Restrictions

The Government of Ontario has recently set in place Stage One for the reopening of the Province.  However, many Emergency Order provisions remain in place; such as, prohibiting gatherings of more than five people and the continued closure of park amenities, in order to stop the spread of COVID-19.

Restricts continue to be lessened and modified by the Government of Ontario. Check their website for the latest updates and detailed information.
