Ontario campgrounds, drive-in theaters allowed to reopen

Province of Ontario
Campgrounds are among those places allowed to reopen.

Ontario is loosening some more of its COVID-19 restrictions.
As of Monday, campers can return to provincial parks, with certain stipulations, while drive-in movie theaters and batting cages were allowed to reopen Sunday.

The total number of confirmed COVID-19 cases in Ontario reached 27,859 on Sunday. The number includes 2,266 deaths and 21,810 cases marked as resolved.

The province continued to test below its capacity on Saturday, having only completed 17,000 tests when it is able to complete 25,000 per day.

Meanwhile, Ontarians who rely on prescription medication will hopefully see an onerous COVID-19 precaution lifted by the end of June. A 30-day limit on prescriptions was brought in by the Ontario government in the early days of the pandemic in an effort to prevent drug shortages.
