Current Public Health Measures

On March 1st Toronto entered the Roadmap Exit Step of the Province of Ontario’s Roadmap to Reopen, with most temporary public health and workplace safety measures implemented to limit the spread of COVID-19 now lifted.

The following changes came into effect March 1, 2022:

  • All indoor and outdoor capacity limits are now lifted, including for all businesses, public gatherings and events.
  • Proof of vaccination requirements are lifted, with continuation of such requirements now being the decision of individual businesses (please respect each business' rules).
  • Industry-specific public health measures are lifted, subject to conditions.

More information can be found on the City’s COVID-19: Orders & Bylaws webpage.

The City continues to follow local and provincial guidance to limit the spread of COVID-19. Proof of vaccination is no longer required to access City facilities and physical distancing is also no longer required.

Mask Regulations

As of Saturday, June 11, 2022, the Province of Ontario has updated some of the provincial masking requirements put in place in response to COVID-19. In some settings, the Province, City and/or individual operators continue to require masks. Check with individual organizations to learn more about their policies.
Even when not required, Toronto Public Health strongly recommends continued masking, especially in crowded indoor public settings.
