The Federation of Ontario Cottagers’ Associations (FOCA) welcomes the end of the stay-at-home order on June 2, and wishes to advise FOCA members and others, that residents will be permitted to travel to a secondary residence. According to a provincial press 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.
Terry Rees, 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.”
