HALDIMAND—As cases continue to drop across the province and vaccination rates continue to rise, the Province has announced that Ontario will move into Step 1 of its economic reopening plan this Friday, June 11, 2021.
Previously, June 14 had been penciled in as the date when Step 1 would take effect, however a statement from the Premier’s office on June 7 indicated that current numbers are much better than recent modelling had indicated. The province has now surpassed over 72% of the adult population receiving first dose vaccinations.
Between May 25 to 31, the case rate in the province dropped 35.1%, with only 525 new cases being reported this past Monday and 469 on Tuesday.
