Updated Reopening Plan
The Ontario Government has released an updated reopening plan for the province, which kicked off earlier in the week with restrictions lifting on a number of indoor venues. Note that many of these locations require enhanced proof of vaccination. Changes made effective on January 31 include:
- Indoor social gatherings moving to 10 indoors and 25 outdoors
- 50% capacity at indoor public venues including restaurants and bars, retail, recreation facilities, movie theatres, museums, and religious services.
The next round of changes is set to come into effect on February 21. To learn more about the plan, visit the Government of Ontario website.

Remember to wear a mask! Wearing your mask protects you and your neighbours. When you walk out of your door, your mask is as important as your wallet or keys! A reminder that Mask wearing is mandatory in Heron Gate hallways, elevators, lobbies, laundry room, and any other shared space inside the buildings. Thank you for your support!
