Ontario will move into the second phase of its reopening plan on June 30, two days ahead of schedule.

The province announced the change this morning.

The second stage of the three-part reopening plan allows haircuts and similar services and will see limits on gatherings and businesses rolled back further.

Outdoor attractions like water parks can open and outdoor performances and team sports can resume.

That stage of the plan was set to take effect on July 2 but COVID-19 vaccination targets have already been surpassed.

Other health indicators have also improved since strict measures took effect in April to control the third wave of COVID-19.
