Thank goodness for CafeTO patios

Covid vaccinations are slowly opening our world again and in mid-June 2021 the Province of Ontario opened up a number of outdoor activities which included outdoor dining. Luckily this is patio season so outdoor dining is just the perfect way to celebrate the new relaxed rules. The umbrella patio in the photo at top is from Mercado Negro's restaurant located on St. Clair West.
You can also visit patios off the streets, like RendezViews above
Or check out the patio in the Distillery District

From the provinces' website “Thanks to the ongoing success of Team Ontario’s vaccine rollout and the ongoing improvements in public health trends, we are able to enter step one of the Roadmap and begin to safely and cautiously lift restrictions,” said Premier Doug Ford. “The only reason we’re able to do so is because of the enormous sacrifices made by individuals, families and communities across Ontario. As we begin to enjoy the benefits of the first step in our roadmap like meeting friends on a patio or visiting your favourite local store, please do so safely by continuing to follow all public health guidelines. In order to safely enter Step One of the Roadmap to Reopen, Ontario needed to have vaccinated 60 per cent of adults with at least one dose for two weeks or longer, ensuring the first dose offers a strong level of protection against COVID-19. As of June 6, 2021 at 8:00 p.m., 72 per cent of the 18+ population in Ontario had received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine with over 10 million doses now having been administered."

Toronto has continued the CafeTO program where lanes of traffic are reduced so that restaurants can open patios in the streets or on the sidewalk, subject to public health measures and social distancing.
