On November 20, 2020, Ontario announced that it was moving Toronto and Peel into “lockdown” restrictions under its COVID-19 Response framework. The province announced that these necessary measures were being taken to limit community transmission of COVID-19 in order to keep schools open, safeguard health system capacity, and protect the province’s most vulnerable populations.
At the time of publication, we were still waiting to review the applicable regulation but the following condo-relevant restrictions are known.
- Indoor organized public events or social gatherings (except with members of the same household) are no longer permitted. This is down from the prior restrictions which authorized such gatherings up to 10 people. In our view, this gathering prohibition applies to AGM but also to board meetings. Time to go virtual;
- Any outdoor organized public events or social gatherings are limited to a maximum of 10 people. This is down from the prior 25 people gathering cap;
- Indoor sports and recreational facilities, including pools, must be closed with limited exceptions. At the time of publication, the exceptions were not yet known.
These restrictions will be effective as of Monday, November 23, 2020.
We have a new blog post elaborating on Lockdown restrictions.
