As COVID-19 cases start to drop, it was just revealed that Ontario's reopening plan will apparently look a little different this time.
A government source reportedly revealed to CityNews that the colour-coded framework, which saw regions placed in grey, red, orange, yellow and green zones, will not be used when Ontario chooses to lift the stay-at-home order.
While it is still unclear exactly how the province is expected to reopen, Christine Elliott, minister of health, does reveal that a plan is coming "very soon" and could look "at what different types of sectors could perhaps be reopened and what their specific needs and timelines are."
According to CityNews, government sources hope that this will be the last reopening the province will face throughout the pandemic.
Currently, Ontario is in a stay-at-home order which is expected to last until at least June 2.
