The global COVID-19 pandemic is having far-reaching effects in Toronto, including major impacts on what have been booming real estate and building industries. Many jobs and most events are currently suspended, postponed, or affected in other ways, though UrbanToronto is still operating at full strength with our team working remotely. As a means to keep the public in the loop about the shutdowns, we’ll be sharing information and status updates from around the industry on a regular basis.
In today’s report: Ford announces new restrictions as COVID-19 cases threaten to remain high all summer, Toronto’s Accessibility Task Force on COVID-19 Vaccines to address equity gaps in vaccine access for people with disabilities, High Park cherry blossoms go virtual again with #BloomAtHome, park remains open for local use, and more news.
