Here Are The Activities You Can & Can't Do In Ontario This Long Weekend

Campsites and cottage rentals aren't allowed, but other activities are.

Toronto Associate Editor

Step one of Ontario's reopening plan may not be kicking into gear until the week of June 14, but there are still many ways to enjoy the long weekend safely. However, with the stay-at-home order extended until June 2, a number of restrictions remain in place.

First, short-term rentals like cabins and cottages are not permitted until step one of reopening, except for individuals in need of housing. However, hotels, motels, lodges, and resorts are allowed.

You're also allowed to plan a day trip to Ontario parks, but overnight camping won't be given the green light until step one.

Outdoor recreational amenities like golf courses and tennis courts are reopening on Saturday, May 22, as well as other activities like horseback riding and archery. You can also use the outdoor workout equipment at your local park.

Outdoor gathering limits will be increased to five people on Saturday, including those from different households. So you can get together with four friends at one of the distancing circles at Trinity Bellwoods, or hit up your favourite recreational amenities for some outdoor fun.

Many popular long weekend attractions like theatres, museums, and zoos will be closed this Victoria Day weekend. However, outdoor zoos, pools and other outside attractions will be allowed to open in step one.
