Ontario easing some capacity limits

Ontario is easing capacity limits for some indoor and outdoor settings where proof of vaccination is required.

Capacity limits at indoor meeting and event spaces, such as banquet halls and conference/convention centres; sporting events; concerts, theatres and cinemas; racing venues (e.g., horse racing); and commercial and film television productions with studio audiences will be increased to up to 50 per cent capacity or 10,000 people.

“With the added layer of protection offered by proof of vaccination, we are ensuring our businesses can remain safe and open as we continue to reach even more Ontarians who have yet to receive a first or second dose,” said Minister of Health Christine Elliott.

For certain outdoor event venues where patrons stand, capacity limits will increase to up to 75 per cent capacity or 15,000 people (whichever is less). At outdoor event venues where patrons are seated, capacity limits will be increased to up to 75 per cent capacity or 30,000 people (whichever is less). This is because the risk of transmission is lower because of reduced mobility around the venue.

All new limits come into effect on Saturday, September 25.

The government has classified the Rogers Centre as an outdoor facility with the dome open or closed. It will be allowed to host Blue Jay games at 50 per cent capacity.
