Ontario Easing Covid Rules, Ending Vaccine Passport System on March 1

Doug Ford, the premier of Ontario, announced that the province would soon no longer require people show proof of vaccination to enter any indoor spaces, and that indoor capacity limits would also be loosened.

Beginning on Feb. 17, we will remove all capacity limits, except for sporting events, concert venues and theaters, which will be capped at 50 percent. Some higher-risk settings will also be capped at 25 percent. Social gathering limits will increase to 25 people indoors and 100 people outdoors. Organized public events will increase to 50 people indoors with no limits outdoors. Effective March 1, we intend to eliminate capacity limits in all indoor public settings. At the same time and at the recommendation of Dr. Moore, we will lift proof of vaccination requirements for all settings. Based on the advice of Dr. Moore, and what we have learned over the pandemic, we will need to keep masking in place for just a little bit longer. And let me be very clear, we’re moving in this direction because it’s safe to do so. Today’s announcement is not because of what’s happening in Ottawa or Windsor, but despite it.
