Ottawa reopens a little bit more
Welcome to the first day of full houses.
The Province is now allowing restaurants, gyms, casinos, and other places that have required proof-of-full-vaccination to open to full capacity. Previously, they had been limited to 50 per cent.
Other places that did not require proof of vaccination, like museums, galleries, places of worship, and personal care business, can also open to full capacity if they start requiring proof of full vaccination.
Assuming that COVID-19 rates do not increase – a big assumption, granted – the Province says that all COVID-19 restrictions will be removed by March, including mask mandates.
And, again if things go well, places that require proof-of-full vaccination may be able to stop asking in January.
Knitters and crocheters looking for a quick but meaningful project can participate in the Goulborn Museum’s “Poppies of Goulborn” exhibit. The installation is a huge net festooned with knitted and crocheted red and black poppies, and will be displayed on the building’s exterior from the end of October until November 12th. The museum supplies instructions, and they advise the use of synthetic yarn that can withstand being in the elements.
