Roadmap for easing COVID-19 restrictions

Step 3 easing of the roadmap to easing COVID-19 restrictions allows businesses and activities to re-open and have more people to attend venues and take part in activities.

Most businesses that have already completed a COVID-Safe Plan will be automatically sent an updated plan with a revised total of patrons allowed based on the room sizes originally supplied as well as revised obligations and recommendations.

A COVID Management Plan will be required for any activity of more than 1,000 people and venues wishing to offer both dancing and consumption of alcohol. COVID Management Plan Frequently Asked Questions (PDF, 196.1 KB) are now available.
