ONTARIO IS MOVING TO STEP ONE IN THE ROAD TO REOPENING
As of Friday, June 11th the province of Ontario is moving into Step One of the Roadmap to Reopen. This allows for outdoor attractions, restaurant patios and non-essential retail to open (with some restrictions). Keeping workplaces, staff and guests safe is our destination’s primary focus. Key public health measures are in place and we all share a responsibility to stay informed, be prepared, be flexible and follow health and safety guidelines.
• Outdoor gatherings of up to 10 people are permitted, including with people from different households. Indoor gatherings are limited to only people within your household.
• Face masks are mandatory in all indoor spaces in Muskoka and when maintaining a physical distance outdoors isn’t possible. Everyone should maintain a physical distance of 2m/6ft from others not in your group at all times.
GET IT TO GO!
Many businesses in Muskoka, including food & drink establishments, are offering online and curbside pick-up shopping options to help minimize potential exposure. If you plan to dine or shop indoors, considering checking the establishment’s website or social media platforms or contacting the business directly, to ensure that indoor dining or shopping is currently offered.
