The directive from the GTA said all hotels can operate as normal and host their guests, subject to the specified elevated hygiene protocols and social distancing.
Food chains and restaurants have also been permitted to operate sit-down as well as pick-up and delivery services while observing appropriate social distancing and hygiene protocols.
All night clubs, however, are to remain closed.
Drinking bars can operate while observing appropriate social distancing and hygiene protocols a statement from the GTA said.
It added: “In all situations hospitality facilities should observe the staff place management and workplace protocols and precautionary measures on public gatherings with the view of achieving social distancing and hygiene protocols as spelt out in the Imposition of Restrictions (Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) Pandemic) Instrument, 2020 (EI64).
