The global COVID-19 pandemic is having far-reaching effects in Toronto, including major impacts to what have been booming real estate and building industries. Many jobs and most events are currently suspended, postponed, or affected in other ways, though UrbanToronto is still operating at full strength with our team working remotely. As a means to keep the public in the loop about the shutdowns, we'll be sharing information and status updates from around the industry on a regular basis. 

In today's report: City of Toronto announces ActiveTO major road closures will be extended into October, Toronto City Council votes unanimously to strengthen bylaws to prevent continued COVID-19 resurgence, Ontario delivers $2.8 Billion COVID-19 Fall preparedness plan, and more news from the COVID-19 front.
