The Ontario government is reducing limits on the number of people permitted to attend unmonitored and private social gatherings across the entire province.

The new limit on the number of people allowed to attend an unmonitored private social gathering across the province is:

    • 10 people at an indoor event or gathering (previous limit of 50)
    • 25 people at an outdoor event or gathering (previous limit of 100)
    • Indoor and outdoor events and gatherings cannot be merged together. Gatherings of 35 (25 outdoors and 10 indoors) are not permitted.

Unmonitored and private social gatherings include functions, parties, dinners, gatherings, BBQs or wedding receptions held in private residences, backyards, parks and other recreational areas.

The new limits will not apply to events or gatherings held in staffed businesses and facilities, such as bars, restaurants, cinemas, convention centres, banquet halls, gyms, places of worship, recreational sporting or performing art events. Existing rules, including public health and workplace safety measures for these businesses and facilities, continue to be in effect.
