Which places are required to be closed?

London is currently in Stage 3 of the Framework for Reopening Ontario. The order detailing Stage 3 closures and what is allowed to be open can be found here

The Chief Medical Officer of Health, public health experts and other officials have advised the following high-risk places and activities are not yet safe to open, due to the likelihood of large crowds congregating, difficulties with physical distancing, or challenges maintaining the proper cleaning and sanitation required to prevent the spread of COVID-19:

  • Amusement parks and water parks
  • Buffet-style food services
  • Dancing at restaurants and bars, other than by performers hired by the establishment following specific requirements
  • Overnight stays at camps for children
  • Private karaoke rooms
  • Prolonged or deliberate contact while playing sports
  • Saunas, steam rooms, bath houses and oxygen bars
  • Table games at casinos and gaming establishments.

All other businesses and public spaces will be permitted to be open, subject to ensuring the appropriate health and safety measures are in place, as well as limits on gathering sizes.

All organized public events, including parades, or social gatherings of more than 50 people indoors or 100 people outdoors are also prohibited.

Individual municipalities may have voluntarily closed other facilities. Check the City of London website for more information about closures in London.
