Toronto is currently in a lockdown until at least January 23, and the provincial and municipal governments are asking residents to only leave their household for essential trips.
But it can be difficult to know if grocery stores, pharmacies, and transit services will remain open or closed on New Year’s Day.
When making your essential trip, it’s important to wear a mask, keep two metres apart from those not in your household, and to frequently wash or sanitize your hands.
