Newfoundland is now at Alert Level 3 and here's what that means

Life for people in Newfoundland is gradually returning back to the new normal as the province moves to Alert Level 3 where more public health measures are set to be relaxed.

The province has said that it was now downgrading from Alert Level 4 to 3 of its 5-level alert system where the main focus is to "control transmission while further relaxing public health measures."

Under this alert level, residents are still expected to follow public health guidelines issued for all alert levels and stay home as much as possible. 

Residents are now allowed to extend their family bubbles from members of their own household to include one other.

Gatherings at funerals, burials and weddings are expanded to 20 people as long as physical distancing can be maintained while wakes remain prohibited.

Campsites, summer day camps, medium-risk outdoor recreational activities, shopping malls, restaurants and outdoor pools are all expected to reopen with restrictions.

Newfoundlanders naturally have reason to brag.

Provinces have been gradually been lifting restrictions and reopening different parts of their economy.

Although for Newfoundland, under this alert level bars and lounges will remain closed, so it will still be some time before they can have a kitchen party outside of their own.
