Ontarians get ok to build social circles!
Effective June 12th, Ontarians can be a part of one social circle of up to 10 people - and not social distance among those 10.
In Ontario, the concept of a social "circle" has been introduced with a limit of 10 people.
A circle is a small group of people whose do not have to practice social distancing and can have physical contact (hug/kiss).
They maintain physical distancing from everyone else.
The limit to the number of people in a circle is 10, and remember that every time you add someone to your circle, you are connecting with everyone in their circle.
The 10 people are meant to stay consistent, meaning you con't change them.
Outside your circle, social distancing must take place (2 metres).
So what does all of this mean relative to having a party?
If you are going to do it, do it within your circle and keep your circle to a maximum of 10 people . That's not a bad number - you can have a decent party with 10 people.

The alternative is if you have a party with people outside of your circle - it needs to be with social distancing (2 metres).
