Muskoka, like many regions of Ontario, started a Stage 3 reopening on Friday, July 17.  The restrictions for "gathering limits" were loosened to the following:

  • Indoor gathering limits will increase to a maximum of 50 people;
  • Outdoor gathering limits will increase to a maximum of 100 people;
  • Gathering limits are subject to physical distancing requirements.

Public gathering limits still apply to indoor and outdoor events and a two metre distance must still be maintained.  


For regions entering stage 3, the Province has lifted the prohibition on real estate professionals hosting open houses. 

Real estate professionals can host open houses provided that they adhere to the Province’s indoor gathering limits of a maximum of 50 people. In all cases, individuals are required to continue to maintain physical distancing with people outside their households or social circles. 

We have continued to follow recommendations during all phases of reopening and wish to thank all of the buyers, sellers and colleagues for their patience.

I am proud to be part of the Real Estate Council of Ontario (RECO) who have demonstrated leadership in protecting the health and safety of our communities while continuing to offer services essential to Ontario’s economy.

It makes sense to help our local business community.  Lets try to keep our dollars close to home.

There are million of viruses that can be transmitted to humans. Over the last century epidemioligsts have studied thousands and estimated that we were due for another deadly virus.

This is not the first nor the last.  How we choose to deal with Covid 19 makes the difference. We still don't know enough about how this virus behaves or if and when we will get a vaccine so until then.....   

We strongly support the government guidelines for stopping the spread of COVID-19. Please be socially responsilble by following recommendations. 

  • Wash hands often and thoroughly for 20 seconds or longer especially when in out in the community. 
  • Practice physical distancing of 2 metres (6 ft)  or more whichever is greatest. 
  • Wear a face mask when you are unable to physically distance out in public. This help protect yourself and others.
  • Disinfect used surfaces often
