As the number of COVID-19 cases slowly starts to lessen, Toronto's re-opening plan is underway. On Monday, multiple retailers will be opening their doors again, but will only be offering curbside pickup and delivery. However, despite the step forward, mayor John Tory is warner eager customers not to flood to the streets this week.\nAccording to CP24, Tory is cautioning shoppers not to visit retail stores unless they absolutely have to.\nThe mayor also stressed the importance of avoiding large crowds and continuing to respect social distancing.\n"I would say to shoppers if you really don't need to get something, don't. I think at the end of the day, we are still saying it is going to be better if we don't have crowd scenes," Tory explained during an interview with CP24 on Monday morning.\nTory also called upon retail shops to enforce the same kind of physical distancing guidelines being used by the essential stores, who were permitted to stay open during the pandemic.\n"With respect to retailers, I would say please show the kind of discipline and ingenuity that the big retailers have shown in organizing lineups and making sure that inside the front of the store that it is organized," he added.\nView this post on Instagram Do your part and stay apart when out in public. As we enter week 9 of this pandemic, I call on our residents to keep up the good work our city has been doing to combat this virus by being disciplined in following public health advice.

Parks staff advise we are through the cherry blossom bloom. Thank you to everyone who enjoys this park for their patience and understanding - you have helped us fight #COVID19 and avoid large crowds gathering. High Park will remain closed to vehicular traffic for the rest of the emergency so people have more space to enjoy the park & keep their distance from others. Thank you to @TorontoPFR staff, @cityofto bylaw officers, & @TorontoPolice for working together during the closure.
