What's open and closed in Toronto on Family Day

Feb 9 2021, 7:20 pm

Please note: As of January 14, a Stay at Home order is in effect for all of Ontario. This means you must stay at home and only go out for necessities including getting food, going to work, and getting exercise. Learn more about Ontario’s Stay at Home order here. If you go out, maintain the six-feet physical distancing guidelines and wear a mask.

As Toronto continues to operate under a lockdown, there’s not much one can do this Family Day.

With the current Stay at Home orders, residents must not leave their house for non-essential purposes. However, if you have to go to the grocery store, pharmacy, or even the LCBO, it’s nice to know what is and isn’t open on the public holiday.

Just remember to keep your two-metre distance from those not in your household, always wear a mask inside and when physical distancing isn’t possible outside, and bring that hand sanitizer with you.

Here’s what’s open — and what’s not — on Monday, February 15:
