 City of Toronto

  • As of 11:30am today, lifeguards are on duty at six of Toronto’s swimming beaches. Lifeguards will supervise swim areas from 11:30am to 6:30pm daily. Read more…
  • As the City of Toronto enters Stage 2 of re-opening on June 24, the following businesses will re-open with modified services:
    • restaurants and bars for delivery, takeout, and outdoor dining only
    • shopping malls, except for indoor dining spaces including any tables and seating in food courts
    • personal care services, such as barber shops, hair styling, nails, tattoos & aesthetic services (but not for care of a patron’s face, such as facials and beard trims)
    • drive-in cinemas and drive-thru concerts, theatrical productions, performance or artistic events.
  • Many recreational and cultural spaces can also reopen, subject to conditions:
    • water recreational services, including splash pads, wading pools, indoor and outdoor swimming pools
    • community centres for a very limited number of modified uses, including certain outdoor sports and recreational activities, day camp, pools, splash pads, spray pads and wading pools, and indoor activities and services other than non-aquatic indoor sports and recreational fitness activities.
    • Campgrounds, museums, galleries, aquariums, zoos and heritage institutions
    • libraries with limited on-site services.

Government of Ontario

  • The Government of Ontario is allowing the City of Toronto to move into Stage 2 of the Province’s re-opening scheme. Toronto Public Health will enter Stage 2 on Wednesday, June 24, 2020 at 12:01am. Only Windsor-Essex will remain in Stage 1.
  • The Provincial Government strongly recommends that public health advice including physical distancing, wearing a face covering, washing hands frequently and thoroughly, and avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth be followed.

Government of Canada

  • Most Federal public servants will be working remotely for the foreseeable future, some even permanently. Individual departments will bring back the most critical staff first. The return will be gradual, will vary by department and will put health and safety first.
  • Pandemic-related disruptions to our daily lives have impacted our mental health and well-being, with some turning to substances like alcohol to cope
  • Even more concerning – research by CAMH published last week indicated that more than 1 in 4 respondents between the ages of 18-59 had engaged in binge drinking in the last 7 days
  • Recent survey conducted by the Canadian Centre on Substance Use and Addiction found that 1 in 4 respondents (ages 35-53) and 1 in 5 (ages 18-34) had increased their alcohol use during the pandemic
  • Lack of regular schedule, stress and boredom were the most common reasons cited for increased drinking

  • 大部份联邦公务员将在未来一段日子里继续远端工作,这个安排对于其中部份职位将是永久性的。 各个部门将首先调回最主要的员工,其余员工将逐步重返以往的工作岗位。政府将会把员工的健康与安全放在首位,因此,进度将会因不同部门而异。
  • 疫情带来的改变影响隃我们的身心健康,而其中有些人因此以依赖酒精等药品来应付这些改变。
  • 更令人担忧的是,CAMH上周发表的研究显示了有超过四分之一,年龄在18-59岁之间的受访者在过去7天内曾有大量饮酒。
  • Canadian Centre on Substance Use and Addiction 最近进行的调查亦发现,大约四分之一(年龄介乎35-53岁之间)的受访者和五分之一(年龄介乎18-34岁之间)的受访者的饮酒量在疫情期间有所增加。
  • 饮酒量增长的原因主要是压力以及缺乏规律和沈闷的生活。
