North Bay Enters Step 1 in the Provincial Roadmap to Reopen

until Tuesday June 29 11:59 PM

Reopening step 1

Step 1 of the roadmap will begin when:

  • 60% of Ontario’s adults receive at least one dose of a covid 19 vaccine
  • public health indicators, such as hospitalizations, ICU occupancy and new admissions and case rates indicate the province can safely move to this step of the roadmap

Based on current trends in key health indicators, including the provincial vaccination rate, we will enter step one of the roadmap on Friday, June 11, 2021 at 12:01 a.m..
