Ontario has entered step one of the three-step Roadmap to Reopen.

Step one focuses on allowing more outdoor activities and removes the restriction on the sale of non-essential goods.

Indoor gatherings are still restricted, but residents are now able to gather in a group of 10 people outdoors.

The Ontario-Manitoba border remains closed to non-essential travel. This restriction could be lifted as early as Wednesday.

The province will remain in step one for at least 21-days and only move into step two if vaccine targets are hit or exceed and if there continues to be improvements in other key public health and health system indicators.
