City of Toronto Stage 3 Re-Opening Overview – Weekend of August 8, 2020
Apartments and condominiums
- New rules are in effect requiring masks or face coverings to be worn in common areas in apartments and condominiums.
- Under the new bylaw for apartments and condos, building owners or operators must have a policy to ensure masks or face coverings are worn in enclosed common spaces such as lobbies, elevators and laundry rooms, with corresponding signs indicating as such.
- This bylaw includes exemptions for people who are unable to wear a mask or face covering for medical reasons, for children under two years old, and for other reasonable accommodations.
Restaurants and bars
- Additional requirements to protect the health and safety of customers are now in effect. These include ensuring that all customers remain seated except when entering/ exiting, using the washroom or paying the bill.
- Customers can expect to be asked for basic personal information as management of food and drink establishments must now keep customer logs that include names and contact information for each party.
- Curb-lane closures continue to be in place this weekend to accommodate cafés/patios for CaféTO locations throughout the city. The CaféTO program currently supports more than 600 restaurants with expanded dining space to allow for physical distancing.
