Effective December 26, 2020 at 12:01am, indoor organized public events and social gatherings are not permitted except with members of the same household. Limit closet contact to your household (the people you live with):
- Families should not visit any other household or allow visitors in their homes
- Trips outside of the home should be limited and only for essential purposes (accessing healthcare and medication, grocery shopping, child care, exercise alone or people in your household and in the community where you live, walking pets when required, and supporting vulnerable community members to meet the needs above)
- Individuals who live alone and single parents may consider having exclusive, close contact with another household to help reduce the negative impacts of social isolation
- Stay home if you are feeling ill, even if you have mild symptoms, or if you are in quarantine or self-isolating.
- Virtual gatherings or events are the safest way to visit or recognize occasions with people outside your household, especially during the holiday season
The limit for outdoor organized public events and social gatherings is restricted to 10 people and must comply with public health advice on physical distancing. If you receive gifts, remember to wash your hands after handling or opening the gift.
