Earlier this week, the Government of Ontario announced that some regions can now transition into Phase 2 of "Reopening Ontario". Eastern Ontario is one of the regions that will enter Phase 2 of reopening on Friday June 12th. This means that in addition to the non-essential stores that were already allowed to open in Phase 1, businesses like personal care services and restaurant patios are now also allowed to open.
What this means concretely for Old Ottawa South is that many of the Personal Care businesses—like the nail salon, the many hair salons, the barbers, etc.—are set to open on June 12, 2020. In addition, bars like Quinn's, Patty's, and the Barley Mow will be opening up their patios.
