  • A plan to safely reopen Ontario and manage COVID-19 for the long-term


    The Ontario government, in consultation with the Chief Medical Officer of Health, has released A Plan to Safely Reopen Ontario and Manage COVID-19 for the Long-Term. This plan outlines Ontario’s cautious and gradual approach to lifting remaining public health and workplace safety measures by March 2022. It will be guided by the ongoing assessment of key public health and health care indicators and supported by local or regional tailored responses to COVID-19.


    Over the next six months, Ontario will slowly and incrementally lift all remaining public health and workplace safety measures, including:

    • wearing face coverings in indoor public settings
    • removing the provincial requirement for proof of vaccination

    To ensure that public health and workplace safety measures are lifted safely, this phased approach will be guided by the ongoing assessment and monitoring of key public health and health care indicators, such as:

    • the identification of any new COVID-19 variants
    • increases in hospitalizations
    • ICU occupancy and rapid increases in transmission

    In the absence of concerning trends, public health and workplace safety measures will be lifted based on the proposed following milestones (PDF).
