Ontario resumes phase two of “Roadmap to Reopen”
Considering the current COVID-19 situation in the country because of the Omicron variant, the Ontario government has returned to phase two of the “Roadmap to Reopen” plan.
Despite the high transmissibility of the Omicron variant, data shows that this variation of the disease is less severe than the others, which is a good indicator due to the advance of vaccination in the country.
However, if the number of cases increases significantly, hospitals can be overwhelmed. To contain this advance, phase two of “Roadmap to Reopen” has resumed with some changes
The measures, which took effect on January 5th and will last for at least 21 days, until 01/26 (with the possibility of extension), include:
Return of remote teaching, but ended on 01/18;
Free assistance service for school-aged children with parents who work in the health area and other frontline professions in the face of COVID-19;
Social gatherings were reduced to 05 people indoors and 10 people outdoors;
Commerce (including malls), public libraries, personal care services, etc., operate at 50% capacity, among other measures.
