COVID-19 hotspots that had to be rolled back to a modified Stage 2 will be able to reopen dance studios.

The news came late this afternoon after the provincial government alluded to the possibility of it earlier today.

Ontario's Sports Minister announced the change on Twitter.

"I can confirm that indoor dance classes can resume in modified Stage 2 regions after a decision taken by our government with the advice of the CMOH and the Ministry of Health. All participants must be pre-registered and maintain at least two metres apart," MPP Lisa MacLeod tweeted.
