Ontario to reopen many outdoor recreational and individual sport sites

The province is set to begin reopening the economy on May 19

The government of Ontario has begun to layout its plan to reopen many of the province’s park and recreational spaces.

In a Thursday announcement, Premier Doug Ford unveiled details of the first stage of his government’s plan to reopen the province’s economy, which includes the reopening of many recreational and individual sports centres. Staring May 19, we will begin to see the gradual reintroduction of golf driving ranges, cycling tracks, tennis courts, and more.

We haven’t quite reached the point of opening swimming pools and centres that house contact sports, but at least we’ll have some familiar activities at our disposal soon.

Next week will also see retail stores outside of shopping malls with street entrances reopening with physical distancing measures.
