The government says it is making the changes based on high immunization levels, stable public health indicators and vaccination certificate requirements that went into effect last month.

Concert halls, meeting and event spaces, racetracks and motor racing tracks are also among the venues allowed to open at 100% capacity from 12:01 am Saturday.

The province says there have been a “limited number of outbreaks” in these settings and that other public health measures will remain in place.

Outdoor facilities where the normal maximum capacity is 20,000 people or more can now fully open, but they must require people to show proof of COVID-19 vaccination.

Capacity limits will remain in place for all other parameters.
