COVID by Regions
BREAKING: On December 21, Ontario has announced a provincewide lockdown to minimize transmission of the virus and prevent hospitals from becoming overwhelmed. The provincewide shut down will go into effect on Saturday December 26, 2020 at 12:01 am. It will last between 14 days (in Northern Ontario) and 28 days (Southern Ontario).
While we are waiting for details, we expect (but do not know for sure) the Grey Zone Restrictions to be those applicable. You can read more on it here.
Under the current COVID-19 response framework, each of Ontario’s 34 Public Health Units is placed under one of five colour zones, ranging from green to red, with the ultimate restriction level being grey (also known as the “lockdown” stage). Under each of these colour zones, the province imposes escalating COVID-related restrictions applicable to various sectors, industries or businesses.
In addition to the provincial regulations, each Public Health Unit (and in fact each municipality) can adopt additional restrictions.
To help you with the ever changing and overlapping restrictions, we have developed COVID Sheets for each of Ontario’s Public Health Units.
