According to the release, indoor dining capacities in the orange and red zones will increase to allow for up to "approximately 50 per cent of the indoor dining area to be accessible to the public, subject to physical distancing rules," although capacity can't exceed 50 people in red zones and 100 people in orange zones.

In the grey zone, outdoor dining will now be allowed, "subject to physical distancing rules and a number of other public health and workplace safety measures," which means Toronto and Peel can finally partake in outdoor dining again.

In the red and orange zones, tables for indoor dining will be limited to members of the same household, and grey will see the same rule for outdoor dining.

Gyms, movie theatres and indoor dining will finally reopen!

The third and final step of Ontario's reopening plan is poised to begin on Wednesday, July 21, three weeks after the start of step two.

Despite surpassing vaccination targets over a week ago to enter step three, Ontario's new top doctor Dr. Kieran Moore said it's unlikely that the reopening timeline will be moved up as the period in between steps is used to determine the impact of COVID-19 variants in hot spot regions. Premier Doug Ford, however, said that he wants to move forward with reopening "as quickly as possible."
