COVID-19: Reduced Capacity Limits in Some Ontario Locations Now in Effect | The Canadian News

The reduced capacity limits are now in effect in certain locations in Ontario where proof of vaccination is required, including arenas, stadiums, concert halls and theaters.

Dr. Kieran Moore, chief medical officer for health, says the change is due to key public health measures stabilizing in recent days.

The province says capacity limits at outdoor events where people stand will increase to 75 percent of capacity or 15,000 people, whichever is less.

Indoor cinemas, concert halls, sporting events, banquet halls, convention centers, race venues, and movie studios will have a capacity limit of up to 50 percent or 10,000 people, whichever be less.

That means more game fans for the Toronto Blue Jays when they take on the New York Yankees in a crucial three-game game next week as they chase a berth in the playoffs.

More fans will also be allowed at the Ottawa Senators and Toronto Maple Leafs games as the NH-L preseason begins soon.
