The global COVID-19 pandemic is having far-reaching effects in Toronto, including major impacts on 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 and healthcare partners confirm 20 per cent of Torontonians have received the first dose of COVID-19 vaccine, Team Toronto administers more than 800,000 COVID-19 vaccine doses across Toronto, It’s all One Planet: A holistic approach to sustainability post-COVID-19, and more from the COVID-19 front.
