Here's What Ontario Officials Are Saying About When Outdoor Activities Can Reopen
Looks like your golf plans will have to stay on hold for now.
It could be a while before Ontarians are allowed to hit the golf courses and basketball courts again.
On Tuesday, reporters asked Health Minister Christine Elliott about what metrics would be needed to open outdoor activities, to which she said there "isn't an exact rate at this point," but the government is assessing the closures on "a daily basis."
"We have seen a lessening of case rates in the last several days, but that doesn't necessarily mean it's a trend," Elliott said. "We need to see a continued reduction before we can start thinking about opening things up again."
Outdoor activities, including golf courses, basketball courts, soccer fields, and more, were mandated to close as part of Ontario's most recent stay-at-home order — a move that has been met with some criticism.
