The global COVID-19 pandemic is having far-reaching effects in Toronto, including major impacts on the 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: Team Toronto vaccination initiative reaches milestone of 20 per cent of Toronto adults receiving second dose of vaccine, Vaughan celebrates another healthcare milestone, and more news from the COVID-19 front.
