Please refer to the most recent Ontario Regulations for current rules, regulations, and guidance. Permissions will vary depending on where the event or gathering will take place. When making your holiday plans, consider the current COVID-19 activity in your community. This will help you decide if you should postpone, cancel or change your plans.
The safest way to celebrate or enjoy the holidays is with members of your immediate household or by hosting virtual gatherings, especially when participating with people who are at risk of more severe disease or outcomes from COVID-19.
As part of your celebrations, you may have a gathering with people you don’t live with. However, it is important to continue following good public health practices. Consider whether the activities you’re planning to take part in are safe. If you’re planning on going out during the holidays or for a celebration, plan lower-risk activities.
No matter your level of risk, show kindness and respect to others by following public health measures. For everyone’s wellbeing, help limit the spread of COVID-19 during holidays and celebrations.
