Toronto Mayor John Tory, joined by chief medical officer of health Dr. Eileen de Villa and chief Matthew Pegg, fire chief & general manager of emergency management for the city, provided the daily coronavirus briefing on Friday.
Tory announced that the city will be releasing a list of recommendations for businesses to help them staying safe and following public health advice as they reopen.
The announcement comes after a provincial decision to allow more non-essential businesses and retailers with street entrances to reopen for curbside pickup, starting Monday.
The mayor has previously announced the reopening of community gardens and allotment gardens in further step to reopen the economy.
Tory said that CurbTO program, launched by the city in April amid the pandemic, has already installed 20 CurbTO locations across the city and will be installing an additional 25 locations on Friday, with plans for more than 100 hotspots in the city.
The program, designed to help reduce sidewalk crowding in front of essential businesses and support increased demands for pickup and delivery services, will expand its services to support additional retail stores in Toronto as they open.
The city has reported 180 new cases of COVID-19, with a total of 7,114 according to the city's COVID-19 portal.
