More health measures were also announced last night, including indoor gatherings being capped at 10 for vaccinated people and outdoor gatherings set at 200 with distancing in place.
Weddings and funerals are also facing limits of 50 or 50% capacity of the venue, whichever is less.
As for businesses, we’re back to retail having to reduce their capacity to 1/3 of fire code and restaurants will only be allowed to feature outdoor dining for tables of 6 from the same household and fitness facilities won’t be able to run group classes. These businesses can however apply for the Restriction Exemption Program, and can operate as normal if they ask people to show proof of vaccine.
This is SUPER confusing, we know. This tweet breaks it down really well

Rolling Stone first published its 500 Greatest Songs list in 2004, when the iPod was relatively new and Billie Eilish was three years old. Music has changed immeasurably since, so we remade the list from scratch. Here we present the all-new #RS500Songshttps://t.co/TwKwFA6DnP— Rolling Stone (@RollingStone) September 15, 2021
We had a fun little debate on the show this morning about how you like to buy your fruit: in it's original condition or pre-cut by who Fuzzy has proclaimed the Fruit Ninjas! Fuzzy is ALL about buying it all ready prepared, saying it's the only way he'll actually buy it and claiming it even tastes better! During our conversation, our friend Mark texted in one of the most glorious videos we've ever seen: a machine seen at a grocery store that actually peels and cores your pineapple for you!
