"Stay home" and "stay safe" are the messages for spring 2021.

Canada's 'Life After Vaccination' Plan Says Indoor Gatherings Won't Happen This Summer

On Friday, May 14, Canada released a "life after vaccination" roadmap that outlined what summer and fall 2021 could look like if high COVID-19 vaccination coverage is reached.

Spring is predicted to continue to see high case numbers and low vaccination coverage, so the guidance is to stay home, stay safe and get vaccinated.

Though moving into summer, Canadians could consider things like camping, hiking, picnicking and eating on patios; but this is only if "75% of those eligible for vaccines have one dose and 20% have a second dose." Of course, local health guidance must also be followed.

There will still be a need for physical distancing and wearing a mask through the summer, according to the guide. If 75% of eligible Canadians have been fully vaccinated by the fall, this is when "you should be able to do more activities indoors with people outside your household."

So, it looks like the "one-dose summer" that Trudeau has mentioned will include a whole lot of outdoor activities.
