Ontario’s chief medical officer of health is set to issue his advice Thursday for safely celebrating Thanksgiving and Halloween.
Earlier this week, Dr. Kieran Moore took note of some of his recommendations for Thanksgiving, saying that celebrating indoors and without a mask The vaccination group as a whole is “absolutely suitable”.
The limit of 100 outdoor and 25 indoor gatherings is still in place in Ontario.
Moore says that if the group has a combination of vaccinated and unvaccinated people, attendees may consider keeping masks indoors, especially for older people or those with chronic medical conditions.
Last year, Ontario recommended that children not be trick-or-treating in the four COVID-19 hot spots at the time, which were the Toronto, Ottawa, Peel and York areas.
Ontario’s average of daily new COVID-19 cases – at 576 – has generally been declining since early September, compared to slightly higher at this time last year, but rising.
