COVID 19 Changes in Ontario

By on April 5, 2021

Attention Colleagues in North-Western Ontario,

As COVID-19 cases continue to rise at an alarming rate, an Ontario province-wide emergency brake is in effect as of Saturday, April 3, at 12:01 a.m.  Starting April 3, the COVID-19 Response Framework (colour-coded zones) is paused. 

The impacts of these measures will be evaluated after one month to determine if it is safe to lift the restrictions or if they need to be extended.

For our parishes:  “Religious, wedding and funeral services:

  • Indoors: 15% capacity of the room
  • Outside: the number of people that can keep two metres physical distance from each other
  • This does not apply to receptions, which have different capacity limits”

For further details please refer to:
