10 restaurant patios in Markham and Richmond Hill that are now open
Patios at restaurants in Markham and Richmond Hill are finally open. Unlike Toronto, Ontario's northern York region has been permitted to enter phase two of the province's recovery plan, meaning patio season is officially back as of today, as long as you're north of Steeles.
Health measures include accepting guests through reservations only, for better crowd control, and capping the maximum number per group at six people in some cases. Patio layouts have been adjusted to adhere to the two metre distance rule.
