Need A Hair Cut? Want to go back to the Shopping Mall? How about a restaurant outing? These are among the businesses and services that will be eligible to re-open in Niagara just four days from now.
A Brief One from Doug Draper
Posted June 15th, 2020 on Niagara At Large
Shortly after noon this June 15th, Ontario Premier Doug Ford announced that Niagara and six other regions across the province will now join 24 others in moving to State Two when it comes to re-opening businesses and services.
That means that shopping malls, restaurants and hair salons will be among the businesses that can now open in Niagara following a lockdown that has lasted more than two months due to the health emergency triggered by COVID-19.
This is news that will no be well-received by thousands of business and many thousands of people who work for them, after an earlier announcement from the Ford government, this past June 8th, listing 24 regions ready to move to Stage Two on June 12th. Due to the number of COVID cases still being recorded in the Niagara area at the time, Niagara did not make that list.
Hamilton and Haldimand are also now among the regions and counties in Ontario eligible for State Two re-openings this June 19th. Toronto, Peel and Windsor-Essex have still not made the list.
Niagara At Large will update this report when more details are made available later.
For now, here is a piece NAL posted this past June 9th reporting on the first 24 regions that made the re-opening list. That piece contains information and links that will give you a clear idea of what businesses and services are included in Ontario’s Stage Two re-opening plan.
