New public health restrictions on mass gatherings

To help prevent the spread of COVID-19, we’ve asked event organizers to cancel large gatherings and international events.

Events should be cancelled if they have:
– 250 attendees or more
– 50 attendees or more that involve international participants, critical staff, seniors, or other high-risk populations

This includes large conferences, sporting and community events. It does not include places of worship, grocery stores, airports or shopping malls.

Schools, daycares and post-secondary institutions can remain open at this time, but steps should be taken to ensure no more than 250 people are in the same room at any given time.
