  • Roadmap to Re-Open

     

    Learn about the Roadmap to Reopen, the province’s three-step plan to safely and gradually lift public health measures based on ongoing progress of provincewide vaccination rates and improvements of key public health and health care indicators.
     
    The province will remain at each step for at least 21 days to evaluate any impacts on key public health and health system indicators. It can take up to two weeks for COVID-19 vaccinations to offer protection against the virus.
     

    Ontario is in Step 3 of the Roadmap to Reopen as of July 16 at 12:01 a.m.

     

    Learn what’s open in Step 3 or read the regulation for full details.

     

    The province will remain in Step Three of the Roadmap for at least 21 days and until 80 per cent of the eligible population aged 12 and over has received one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine and 75 per cent have received their second, with no public health unit having less than 70 per cent of their eligible population aged 12 and over fully vaccinated. Other key public health and health care indicators must also continue to remain stable.

     

    Upon meeting these thresholds, the vast majority of public health and workplace safety measures, including capacity limits for indoor and outdoor settings and limits for social gatherings, will be lifted. Only a small number of measures will remain in place, including the requirement for passive screening, such as posting a sign, and businesses requiring a safety plan.

    1

    Step 1

    An initial focus on resuming outdoor activities with smaller crowds where the risk of transmission is lower, and permitting limited indoor settings with restrictions.

    2

    Step 2

    Further expanding outdoor activities and resuming limited indoor services with small numbers of people and with face coverings being worn.

    3

    Step 3

    Expanding access to indoor settings, with restrictions, including where there are larger numbers of people and where face coverings can’t always be worn.

  • COVID-19 Vaccine Update

     

    Your very best source for accurate and updated information is Ontario’s dedicated COVID-19 website: https://covid-19.ontario.ca/

     

    Individuals aged 12 and over across Ontario are eligible to book a COVID-19 vaccine first and second dose appointment through the provincial booking system and call centre, or directly through York Region Public Health. 

     

    Individuals who wish to receive a second dose of the AstraZeneca Vaccine must contact a pharmacy which offers the vaccine. Please visit: https://covid-19.ontario.ca/vaccine-locations to find the location closest to you.

     

    Your appointment for your accelerated second dose must be at least:
     

    8 weeks after your first dose of AstraZeneca with informed consent

    OR

    28 days after your first dose of Moderna or Pfizer

     

    You will receive an mRNA vaccine (either Moderna or Pfizer) at the clinic depending on supplies and age eligibility. If you had Moderna or Pfizer for your first dose, you can safely take either Moderna or Pfizer for your second dose for strong protection against COVID-19. If you had AstraZeneca for your first dose you can safely take either Moderna, Pfizer or AstraZeneca for your second dose for strong protection. Youth aged 12-17 are only eligible to receive the Pfizer vaccine, as it is the only one approved for this age group by Health Canada.

     
    For individuals who still have a red and white health card and for those who require assistance, please call the Provincial Vaccine Information Line number at 1-888-999-6488.
