Hamilton moves to “Grey Zone,” Eastern Ontario Health Unit moves to “Red Zone” as of Monday, March 29, 2021 at 12:01 a.m., which means a reduction to 25% and 50% capacity for non-essential retailers, respectively.
Ontario announced moments ago that the following regions will change colour in the Keeping Ontario Safe and Open Framework.
Grey-Lockdown (25% Capacity):
- City of Hamilton Public Health Services
Red-Control (50% Capacity):
- Eastern Ontario Health Unit
A move to the Grey-Lockdown and Red-Control level means capacity will be greatly reduced. For most retailers (non-grocery, non-pharmacy), Grey means 25% capacity defined as “no more customers than the total square metres of sales floor, less fixtures, divided by 16 m2.” Red means 50% capacity defined as “no more customers than the total square metres of sales floor, less fixtures, divided by 8 m2.” Both capacity restriction apply to customers only – employees do not count towards the limit.
