Yesterday, the Provincial Government released a statement allowing certain regions on Ontario to begin Phase 2 of re-opening. Brantford-Brant and the region covered by the Brant County Health Unit is included in these regions. Please read below for more information on what this means for businesses in our area.
In Stage 2, additional restrictions will be loosened while emphasizing public health advice, workplace health and safety guidance, and personal and collective responsibilities. More businesses and services will be permitted to open, as well as community, recreational and outdoor spaces. The people and employers of the province must continue to act and work in the ways required to help stop the spread of COVID-19. As part of Ontario’s responsible approach, protections for vulnerable people must remain a top priority throughout the next stages of reopening.
