The province launched its online COVID-19 vaccine booking system on March 15.
The new measures are effective as of 12:01 am on March 20, and also allow for indoor dining with up to 50 patrons in the Red-Control level, and 100 patrons in the Orange-Restrict level.

Last week, Ontario’s health officials said that COVID-19 cases in the province are increasing across most public health units, and ramping up the vaccination process is how the pandemic can resolve.
To date, Ontario has seen 328,874 COVID-19 cases and 7,241 virus-related deaths.
