‘Worst Is Behind Us’: Ford Announces Plan to Relax Ontario’s COVID-19 Restrictions

Ontario Premier Doug Ford has announced plans to phase out COVID-19 restrictions in the province starting Jan. 31, citing a lower test positivity rate and stabilizing health-care workforce.

The final stage is set to be effective on March 14, as the province lifts all capacity limits for indoor public settings, though vaccine passports will remain in place for existing settings. Social gatherings at this stage will be limited to 50 people indoors and no limits for outdoors. The passports are as temporary as the Sept 1917 temporary income tax act.
