Masks now mandatory outdoors and indoors at Distillery District Winter Village


UPDATE Toronto has since been placed into the Grey lockdown category, which means after this weekend and starting on November 23, indoor and outdoor dining as well as indoor shopping will be closed. Many Distillery businesses will offer online shopping with curbside pickup as well as takeout and delivery.

Today, Distillery District announced two days ago that masks will be mandatory both inside and outside when visiting the area shops and Winter Village.

Those already seated at tables while consuming food and beverages are not required to wear masks, but in any other scenario, masks are mandatory.

Although the hugely popular Toronto Christmas Market has been cancelled for this the Distillery Historic District has been transformed into a winter wonderland featuring starlit canopies and garlands, a grand Christmas Tree, outdoor dining chalets and festive music throughout.

The Distillery’s Winter Village is a magical, and now even safer alternative to the city’s favourite Christmas market offering a safe holiday shopping environment with its open-air, pedestrian-only streets.

Many retailers at The Distillery District offering curb-side pick-up and online shopping, making it a perfect place to cross things off your list while supporting local artisans, merchants and restaurants this holiday season — many that are unique to The Distillery District.

COVID-19 Protocols and Safety in addition to the wearing of masks
As part of The Distillery’s efforts to combat the spread of COVID-19, they have implemented additional precautionary measures, including: increased signage to promote physical distancing, increased cleaning – especially in high traffic areas, regular use of medical-grade cleaning products, hand sanitizers in all merchants and restaurants, and a site-wide application of the ÆGIS Treatment Program™. The Distillery District and its merchants and restaurants also adhere to all Toronto Public Health protocols and guidelines and request that visitors do their part, including wearing a mask in indoor public spaces and outdoors when physical distancing isn’t possible, physically distance by 2 m, and hand washing to help reduce the spread.

The folks at the Distillery District recommend that you plan your visit during the weekdays, as the traffic is considerably less during these times.

Additional staff and security protocols on-site to carefully monitor capacity. If there is a risk to safely physically distance, the entrances will be closed until traffic subsides. Before visiting, check our Instagram page @DistilleryTO for live updates.
