The number of attendees permitted at indoor and outdoor wedding and funeral ceremonies in Ontario is changing.

The Ontario government says that based on positive public health trends they are extending the number of people allowed to attend an indoor wedding or funeral ceremony to a maximum of 30% capacity of the ceremony venue.

Wedding and funeral ceremonies taking place outdoors will be limited to 50 attendees.

For both indoor and outdoor ceremonies, those attending must follow proper health and safety advice, including practising physical distancing from people who are not from the same household or their established 10-person social circle.

The changes came into effect on Friday, June 12th at 12:01am.

The maximum number of people allowed to attend indoor or outdoor wedding and funeral receptions remains at 10 people. As the COVID-19 outbreak evolves in Ontario, officials say that further direction will be provided on capacity restrictions for weddings and funerals going forward.
