Despite Ontario currently being in a stay-at-home order, some businesses across the province have only taken the new rules as a suggestion.
Several restaurants and gyms have opened their doors to in-person events, even though the government is asking them to stay closed.
At least three restaurants, Family Kitchen in Leamington, South Branch Bistro in Kemptville, and the Simmering Kettle in Barrie have opened for in-person dining. The latter two locations have since had their liquor licenses suspended.
HUF Gym in Mississauga also opened its doors on Tuesday afternoon, according to The Toronto Star. The owner of the location argues gyms should be essential to help people with their mental health.
Attain Athletic Wellness in Caledonia announced that it would keep its gym open for anyone with physical or mental disabilities. However, according to a local news outlet, they were reportedly fined $880.
