Multiple cities and counties in Ontario are back in shutdown at Midnight tonight and a large portion of Quebec is already shut down, including the major cities of that province.

This means cinemas are shut down as are non-essential businesses, many businesses running at 35-50% capacity and/or reduced hours until further notice, with measures to protect the public including the mandatory wearing of masks and use of hand sanitizers in safe and customers. Call your local stores for details.

If possible, you should probably use delivery, curbside and pickup services if they are available. I’ve personally used these since March 2020 and rarely visited stores since then, taking advantage of subscriptions services like Amazon Prime and PC Insiders. But if you need to pick up a prescription at your local Shoppers Drug Mart or Rexall, keep an eye out for discounted masks and hand sanitizers. I’ve noticed a few were available.

Mail order services are available from many retailers so this could be the safest option at this time.
