Ontario closes strip clubs, imposes tighter restrictions on bars and restaurants.

The Ontario government is implementing a number of new provincewide restrictions and public health measures aimed at curbing a surge in new cases of COVID-19.

“Over the past five weeks, Ontario has experienced an increase in the rate of new COVID-19 cases,” the province said in a news release Friday afternoon. “Private social gatherings continue to be a significant source of transmission in many local communities, along with outbreak clusters in restaurants, bars, and other food and drink establishments, including strip clubs, with most cases in the 20-39 age group.”

As a result, the government is taking the following measures:

·         Last call at bars and restaurants, including nightclubs, is 11 p.m.

·         All strip clubs will be closed until further notice.

·         Require all businesses and organizations to comply with the advice of Chief Medical Officer of Health Dr. David Williams, including screening people who wish to enter their premises for COVID-19 symptoms.

·         The orders take effect at 12:01 a.m. Saturday.

The provincial government also said it will work with municipalities to ramp up enforcement of public health regulations.
