The 28-day modified stage 2 is coming to an end in many Ontario regions and residents are wondering what comes next.

Premier Doug Ford just announced when Toronto's reopening its restaurants, bars and gyms.

While Peel, Ottawa, and York's restrictions will be lifted on November 7, Toronto will have to wait for another week, with measures being lifted on November 14.

Ford says this is because Toronto Mayor John Tory requested more time for the city.

Mayor Tory has asked us for a little more time in Toronto. At [his] request, Toronto will move into the restrict level a week later on November 14.

"This means indoor dining and gyms will be open within capacity limits and restricted hours," said the premier.

In the same announcement, Ford introduced a new colour-coded tier system for tracking COVID-19 in the province.

Toronto, Peel, Ottawa, and York are all currently in the red, or "control" zone, and will be moving into the orange, or "protect" zone over the coming weeks.

This announcement comes as Ontario reported 1,050 new cases on Tuesday, the highest increase yet.
