The City of Toronto is safely and gradually opening a number of services and amenities for residents to enjoy, following the Province of Ontario’s orders and guidance from Toronto’s Medical Officer of Health. Residents are encouraged to head outside in their local neighbourhood for fresh air and exercise to support physical and mental well-being, but are reminded to adhere to public health advice to practise physical distancing or wear a face covering or non-medical mask to protect others when in settings where physical distancing cannot be maintained.
