On Friday Medical Officer of Health, Dr. Eileen de Villa issued orders under the Health Protection and Promotion Act to close four dining and drinking establishments “until they satisfy conditions to limit COVID-19 transmission in these settings.”

Today, Toronto Public Health has identified three of the restaurants and bars that were served closing orders, with the fourth still in process. All of the establishments identified, MARBL, King Taps, and Casa Mezcal, are located on King Street West.

Ontario reported another 435 cases of COVID-19 on Saturday. People in their 20s and 30s make up nearly half of the total.

The King Street businesses will be allowed to reopen when de Villa is satisfied that each establishment has complied with her order. City enforcement teams of Toronto Police, bylaw officers, and Toronto Public Health officers will ensure compliance with the orders until they are lifted.
