The Ontario Government has announced changes to its restrictions pertaining to visiting long-term care facilities. All visits can now accommodate two people, and COVID tests are no longer required for outdoor visits. Outdoor visitors will be required to wear and supply their own face coverings.

Indoor visits will be permitted as of July 22nd, but visitors will have to verbally attest to having received a negative result on a COVID test in the past two weeks. Indoor visitors are required to wear masks that the long-term care facility provides.
