The Federation of Ontario Cottagers’ Associations welcomes the end of the stay-at-home order back on June 2, and wishes to advise our members and others that, in the words of the provincial release:

Ontarians will be able to leave home to travel within the province to a secondary residence for any reason, however, they are not permitted to host members of another household indoors except for a person from another household who lives alone or a caregiver.

FOCA also advises that other health measures remain in effect, including restrictions on gatherings, businesses, services and activities. This includes limiting indoor gatherings to households only, and outdoor gatherings to up to five people, restricting non-essential retail to curbside pickup and delivery only, as well as limiting short-term rentals to individuals in need of housing.

FOCA’s Executive Director adds, “Notwithstanding the end of the stay-at-home order, FOCA reminds everyone to continue to follow public health guidance to keep each other and our waterfront communities safe.”
