Here's the official list of businesses reopening during Stage 1 in Ontario

Ontario just dropped a new and significantly-expanded list of businesses that will soon be reopening under Stage 1 of the provincial government's economic recovery plan.

"During the last several weeks, the people of Ontario have been called on to make incredible sacrifices to help us stop the spread of COVID-19, including staying home from work, closing down businesses and going without a regular paycheque," said Premier Ford when announcing the details of Stage One during his daily press conference on Thursday.

"However, we are reopening even more of our businesses beginning this long weekend. We are taking a cautious, balanced approach to our economic reopening, to protect the health and safety of everyone."

Here's the list of businesses and their restrictions, written by the government of Ontario, allowed to open on May 19.
