Premier Ford has just announced the following new restrictions for all food and drink businesses in the Province of Ontario - these restrictions will go into effect tomorrow (Saturday) so at midnight tonight:
1. Food and Drink businesses must close at midnight and remain closed until 5am except for delivery and take-out
2. Food and Drink businesses are ordered to stop alcohol sales at 11pm
3. Alcohol consumption will be prohibited at all Food and Drink businesses in the Ontario between 12am and 9am
4. All strip clubs in the Province are now ordered closed
I know these are regulations that none of us wanted to hear today - especially our bar and restaurant members. If we can get our case numbers down hopefully these new restrictions will be short-lived.
