Strict limits on shopping, gatherings, and camping will continue in Ontario despite the province's stay-at-home order expiring Wednesday.

Though people will no longer be required to stay at home, there won't be many places to go. Restaurants and non-essential retailers will still be restricted to curbside pickup or delivery, outdoor gatherings will be limited to five people, and provincial parks will only be open for day use.

"We’ve seen great progress in our fight against COVID-19 in recent weeks, but now is not the time to let our guard down," Solicitor General Sylvia Jones said in a news release.

Ontario has abandoned its previous five-level "framework" and is now beginning a three-step "roadmap to reopen," with an additional "before step 1" phase. The province is still "before step 1."

Step 1 will not take effect until two weeks after 60% of adults have received at least one dose of vaccine.
