Economy begins to open back up today

Beginning today, some businesses were allowed to open, although,they must comply with strict public health measures to operate safely as we enter the first stage of re-opening the province's economy.

LIST OF BUSINESSES PERMITTED TO REOPEN

  • Garden centres and nurseries with curbside pick-up and delivery only;
  • Lawn care and landscaping;
  • Additional essential construction projects that include:
    • shipping and logistics;
    • broadband, telecommunications, and digital infrastructure;
    • any other project that supports the improved delivery of goods and services;
    • municipal projects;
    • colleges and universities;
    • child care centres;
    • schools; and
    • site preparation, excavation, and servicing for institutional, commercial, industrial and residential development;
  • Automatic and self-serve car washes;
  • Auto dealerships, open by appointment only;
  • Golf courses may prepare their courses for the upcoming season, but not open to the public; and
  • Marinas may also begin preparations for the recreational boating season by servicing boats and other watercraft and placing boats in the water, but not open to the public. Boats and watercraft must be secured to a dock in the marina until public access is allowed.

The government continues to urge caution that Ontarians must continue with strict distancing and stay-at-home measures to continue to reduce the spread of COVID-19.

WORKPLACE SAFETY GUIDELINES

  • On April 30, the Government of Ontario and provincial health and safety associations released 61 technical sector guidance documents to support employers and employees in remaining safe in the workplace during the COVID-19 outbreak and the reopening process.

These guidelines provide sector-specific directions. Additional guidelines will be released in the near future. Access the guidance documents here.
