Toronto's outdoor patios will be closing down this weekend

Apr 1 2021, 5:57 pm

Toronto will be closing its outdoor patio season a mere weeks after they were allowed to reopen.

In a span of two weeks, Toronto managed to open outdoor patios to the public, and they will officially close as of April 3, as per Ontario’s latest COVID-19 restrictions.

Take-out and delivery options will still be available.

On March 20, both Toronto and Peel allowed outdoor dining as changes were made to Grey Zone restrictions.

Guests were required to be from the same household to sit at the same table; however, exceptions were made for people who live alone and those who need to visit with a caregiver.

As for CaféTO, curb lane closure locations for 2021 could be installed as soon as May, two months earlier than last year. However, with current restrictions in place, residents may have to wait and see.

The latest restrictions, announced on April 1, mean indoor dining at restaurants will remain closed, so will personal care services such as hair salons and indoor fitness activities.

Ontario reported 2,557 new COVID-19 infections Thursday as officials urged residents not to gather over the Easter long weekend.
