Ontario has moved into Step 3 of the Roadmap to Reopen.

Step 3 sees additional indoor services reopen with larger numbers of people and restrictions in place.

The province will remain in Step 3 for at least 21 days and until 80 per cent of the eligible population aged 12 and over has received one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine, and 75% have received their second, with no public health unit having less than 70% of their eligible population aged 12 and over fully vaccinated.

78.96 per cent of Ontarians aged 12 and over have received one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine and 57.45 per cent are fully immunized, as of the afternoon of Thursday, July 15.
