In these regions, restrictions include limiting gatherings to 10 people indoors and 25 outdoors, restaurants seating no more than six people at a table and collecting contact info, and theatres remaining open with a maximum of 50 people inside.

Regions moving into the orange-restrict level are Huron Perth, Simcoe Muskoka, Southwestern, and Windsor-Essex County.

In these areas, restaurants are allowed 50 people seated inside, personal services that require mask removal are prohibited, and liquor can only be served until 9:00 p.m, among other rules.

Durham Region and the Region of Waterloo are both moving into the red-control level.

This is the highest level other than a full lockdown, and means higher limits on public gatherings, a limit of 10 patrons for indoor dining and gyms, and screening patrons at mall entrances.
