Please Note: As of March 8, Toronto is under the province’s Grey Zone. This means you must stay at home as much as possible and only go out for necessities, including getting food, going to work, and getting exercise. If you go out, maintain the six-foot physical distancing guidelines and wear a mask.

Spring is here and the sun is out! Here are a few things that you can do in Toronto that are safe and fun.

It’s important to remember that although Ontario’s Stay at Home orders have lifted in Toronto, only essential trips such as getting food, heading to work, and getting exercise are permitted.
