Windsor Puts Strict Restrictions On Restaurants & Weddings As COVID-19 Cases Rise

Windsor Health Unit has installed a sweeping list of new COVID-19 restrictions on Tuesday, all of which will have a significant impact on the region's nightlife and ceremonies.

Dr. Wajid Ahmed, medical officer of health, announced that residents will be forced to follow its updated regulations starting September 7 at 12:01 a.m. in addition to the provincial government's policies.

The restrictions will require restaurants, bars, nightclubs and adult entertainment venues to close down operations at 12:00 a.m. as well as ban dancing indoors, except "where dancing is part of employment."

The instructions also state that weddings, funerals and other ceremonies must limit attendance to a maximum of 100 people with dancing indoors restricted to martial couples. These new rules for weddings will begin on September 20 at 12:01 a.m.

"At this time, I would like to remind our residents that COVID-19 is spreading rapidly in our community and all residents of Windsor and Essex County need to do their part to prevent the spread of COVID-19 by following these public health measure," Ahmed said.
