Yesterday, Premier Doug Ford announced the Plan to safely reopen Ontario.

For dealers, nothing has changed and will not change until February:

  • 50 per cent capacity
  • music played is not above a decibel level where normal conversation is possible
  • safety measures for vehicle test drives sales, such as a maximum of 10 minutes for a test drive, a maximum of two people in a vehicle, including one sales representative, windows must be rolled down, active screening, masking, etc.
  • Post visible and conspicuous signs that state the capacity limits in the establishment (50 per cent of the maximum occupant load as calculated in accordance with the Fire Code)
  • Ensure physical distancing in-store
  • Clean and disinfect commonly touched areas of surfaces and objects, including inside vehicles

Restrictions will loosen further on February 21, 2022 with a further step and additional barriers removed on March 14, 2022.  The full plan can be viewed here:
