ford monday close

The idea of the social circle in the province of Ontario is now done.

Health officials say they are pausing social circles and asking all Ontario residents to allow close contact only with people living in their own household and maintain two metres physical distancing from everyone else.

Those who live alone, can consider close contact with another household.

The premier has also announced a province-wide mask policy, where you'll have to wear a mask anytime you're inside in a public place in Ontario.

The provincial government has also confirmed new restrictions on bars and restaurants, gyms and banquet halls in the hot spots of Toronto, Peel and Ottawa.

The changes include new capacity restrictions, a maximum table capacity of six, and a requirement that establishments collect contact information for every customer.

 Banquet halls will see new caps as well, of 50 people per facility, instead of the current limit of 50 per room.

 Gyms would also see their capacity limited, with restrictions on group classes.
