What's open right now on the Toronto Islands
While some brave folks are venturing to the Islands to visit thanks to water taxis, the popular understanding is that the Islands are completely closed to the public until further notice. This is false.
The Ward's Island ferry is still operating every day, and while it's mainly for staff and locals, if you're taking the ferry to visit a specific business, you're more than welcome to float on over.

Camp Wavelength, an annual camping music festival set for August 18, stands in solidarity with those on the Islands. A rep from the festival confirmed they will be stagging the festival on the Island "until further notice."
It seems all is not lost for those still looking for a quick Island escape. As long as you explicitly state you're heading over to eat, paddle, or take a walking tour, the Islands are still ready to be enjoyed.
