DriveTest workers and lifeguards at six beaches have resumed work which means those beaches will be open.
DriveTest centres across the province begin the first phase of re-opening Monday with 56 full-time locations available for G1 and M1 knowledge tests.
In an effort to reduce crowding, customers will be served based on when they were born. Those with birthdays between January and June will be allowed to visit a centre during the first week of reopening. People’s birthdays between July and December will be served next week.
Access will continue to alternate weekly until DriveTest centres have fully reopened.
Meanwhile with summer here, these are the city beaches open:
Bluffer’s Park. Cherry/Clarke, Kew-Balmy, Marie Curtis Park East, Sunnyside and Woodbine beaches.
Lifeguards will be on duty every day until 6:30 p.m. and on top of their regular duties, they will help manage crowds.
Unfortunately for those seeking a reprieve from the heat by going to the city’s splash pads or outdoor pools will have to wait a bit longer.
Last week, all of Ontario with the exception of Toronto, Peel Region, and Windsor-Essex — were allowed to move into Stage 2.
Meanwhile businesses in and around Toronto are doing brisk business as Torontonians drive out of town to get some basic services such as haircuts and a good meal.
