On Friday, October 8, the Province of Ontario announced that with public health and health care indicators remaining stable or improving, the government, in consultation with the Chief Medical Officer of Health, is cautiously lifting capacity limits in select indoor and outdoor settings where proof of vaccination is required. This gradual and incremental approach will continue to help protect people and ensure the province continues to cautiously lift public health measures safely.

Effective Saturday, October 9, 2021, at 12:01 a.m., capacity limits were lifted to allow 100% capacity in the following settings:

· Concert venues, theatres and cinemas;

· Spectator areas of facilities for sports and recreational fitness (would not include gyms, personal training);

· Meeting and event spaces (indoor meeting and event spaces will still need to limit capacity to the number that can maintain physical distancing);

· Horseracing tracks, car racing tracks, and other similar venues; and

· Commercial film and television productions with studio audiences.

TIBS show management is waiting for the details of the expanded capacity allowances from Exhibition Place and will continue to update exhibitors through their newsletter as information regarding guidelines are developed in conjunction with public health and the venue.
