In July, Ontario entered Step Three of its Roadmap to Reopen, and on September 22, 2021, began to require full vaccination (two doses plus 14 days) with proof of vaccination and ID to access restaurants and certain public settings and facilities (i.e., vaccine passports). On September 24, 2021, Ontario announced that “with public health and health care indicators stable and proof of vaccination now in effect,” effective September 25, 2021, capacity limits would be “cautiously” increased in certain settings where proof of vaccination is required.
To bring this into effect, Ontario published O. Reg. 678/21, which amended O. Reg. 364/20 under the Reopening Ontario (A Flexible Response to COVID-19) Act, 2020. O. Reg. 678/21 added certain outdoor areas of select business premises to the list of those requiring proof of full vaccination from patrons, and increased capacity limits for certain premises. The details are set out below.
