There is a light at the end of the tunnel, friends and it might be closer than we thought! Today, Health Canada announced that public health measures and restrictions in certain areas will begin to ease when 75% of the country has received their first dose and 20% of the population receives their second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.

This major announcement comes only days after the US and the CDC said that those who were fully vaccinated would no longer have to wear their masks in crowds outdoors and in controlled areas such as workplaces and schools.

Depending on where you live, this summer single-dosers may safely take part in camping, hiking, having picnics, and sitting on patios. Other luxuries such as outdoor gatherings, indoor sports, and post-secondary classes may also resume sometime this fall, if (and hopefully when) 75% of Canadians receive their second dose.

For reference, as of May 8th, Health Canada announced that nearly 50% of residents over the age of 18 had already gotten their first shot, which means that we’re well on our way to a more relaxed tomorrow.

However, In addition to all of this wonderful news, Health Canada concluded their announcement with a reminder that although there is an end in sight, we are not out of the woods yet and we might not be even after our lives starts to feel normal again.

Please don’t forget,” they said. “We must continue to follow some public health advice. So, keep it up, Canada – every shot brings us one step closer to the things we love.”

If this isn’t the best news to kick off your weekend, we honestly don’t know what is, folks. We’ve got this – we’ve just got to push it to the finish line.

Until then, please keep following any rules that your province may have in place, roll up those sleeves, and make your appointments!
