The Ontario government is extending its pause on the lifting of capacity limits in remaining higher-risk settings where proof of vaccination is required.

These settings include:

  • food or drink establishments with dance facilities such as night clubs and wedding receptions in meeting/event spaces where there is dancing;
  • strip clubs; and
  • sex clubs and bathhouses.

The government says it’s continuing to monitor trends in public health and health care indicators while learning more about the Omicron variant.

“In line with Ontario’s cautious approach to date, as public health and medical experts learn more about the Omicron variant, we are continuing to take a deliberate pause in reopening to protect our hard-fought progress against COVID-19,” said Christine Elliott, Deputy Premier and Minister of Health. “As Ontario continues to take rapid action to protect against COVID-19 and variants, I encourage everyone to get their first, second or booster dose of the COVID-19 vaccine as soon as possible.”

As of December 6th, 2021, there were 165 COVID-19 related critical illness patients in intensive-care units.
