Toronto To Move To Grey-Lockdown on Monday

Today the Ontario government announced that Toronto will transition from the stay-at-home order to the Colour Coded Framework on Monday, March 8th, 2021. Toronto will be in the Grey-Lockdown.

The government has updated the Framework to allow for a safer approach to retail. Limited in-person shopping in Grey-Lockdown zones will be permitted with public health and safety measures.

  • 50% capacity limit¬†for supermarkets, convenience stores, pharmacies, and other stores that primarily sell groceries continues
  • 25% capacity limit¬†for all other retail stores, including, big box stores, liquor stores, hardware stores, and garden centres.
  • Curbside pick-up and delivery permitted.
  • Stores¬†must post¬†capacity limits¬†publicly¬†(Post at any entrances customers and staff may use.)
  • Stores must have¬†passive screening for patrons.¬†This can be done by posting¬†this screening poster¬†at your store’s entrance
  • Individuals¬†must continue to¬†practice physical distancing¬†and¬†wear a mask

Please use the¬†Retail Council of Canada’s¬†store capacity tool to determine what the capacity limit is for your business.
