Stay-at-home order to end June 2, but nothing much changes

Birds engaging in illegal gathering activities at Point Petre. 🙂

Ontario’s stay-at-home order expires Wednesday, June 2, but daily doings for most people won’t change as re-opening plans are not set to begin until June 14 and the ’emergency brake’ measures remain in effect.

Come Thursday, people are allowed to leave their homes for non-essential reasons and can see friends and family outdoors with a five-person limit. Indoor gatherings are not allowed. Up to 10 people (indoors or outdoors) can attend weddings and funerals or religious services.

The provincial government has also extended the prohibition of camping on public land and border crossings between provinces until at least June 16.

Shopping with 25 per cent capacity continues at grocery stores and non-essential retail remains off limits. Non-essential retail, bars and restaurants remain closed until at least June 14 but can continue curbside, take-out and delivery.

Haircuts and other personal services remain off the table until step two of the re-opening plan. Click here for details of the three-step re-opening plan so far

    Last weekend many people gathered at the JAM statue in front of the library for a vigil, but just five people will be allowed to gather outdoors after June 2nd? How can this be justified?
