Ready to Ride Again: COVID Safety on Transit

Public transit has always helped people get to their jobs, friends, families and everything else Toronto has to offer. It’s still doing that – now safer than ever.

 

The Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) and Metrolinx (GO Transit & UP Express) have taken significant steps to protect riders across the Toronto region from COVID-19 transmission. To date, there have been no cases in Toronto where transit has been contact-traced as the source of transmission.

 

In partnership with the Toronto Region Board of Trade’s We’re Ready Toronto campaign to welcome people back downtown safely and sustainably, TTC and Metrolinx are sharing the ways they’ve made it safer to ride public transit.  Please click here to learn more about COVID safety measures on the TTC and Metrolinx.

Proof of Vaccination Required for Interior Dining

Further to the announcement by the Ontario Government, visitors will be required to provide proof of full vaccination and provide government approved ID for dining in our food court starting Wednesday, September 22, 2021.

 

Visitors entering 145 King Street West for the purpose of indoor dining will need to be fully vaccinated and provide proof of vaccination (paper or PDF) along with a government issued photo ID to access the food court and dine-in at any restaurant at 145 King Street West.

 

Proof of vaccination documents can be downloaded here: https://covid19.ontariohealth.ca/

 

Individuals who cannot receive the vaccine due to medical exemptions will be permitted entry with a doctor’s note until recognized medical exemptions can be integrated as part of a digital vaccine certificate.  Children who are 11 years of age and younger and unable to be vaccinated will also be exempted from these requirements.

 

For more information visit https://bit.ly/ontariovax.

 

Proof of vaccination is not required for outdoor patios, takeout and delivery from 145 King Street West food vendors.

Never Have I Ever TO Contest

As downtown Toronto continues to reopen, the Toronto Region Board of Trade and   Destination Toronto are launching the Never Have I Ever TO campaign!

 

Whether it’s having a meeting on a famed rooftop overlooking the lake or grabbing coffee for your team from one of the Financial District’s award-winning cafés, Never Have I Ever TO reminds us all about the best parts of working in a major downtown center, there’s always something new to experience!

 

How the contest works:

 

  • Between October 4th and October 31st, have a new experience in the downtown. It could be enjoying a restaurant, going to an exercise class or participating in a game or activity for the first time. If you need suggestions, the Board and Destination Toronto have provided a list here.
  • Take a photo of this experience and post it on your social channels using the hashtags #WeAreReadyToronto and #NeverHaveIEverTO.  Tag Toronto Region Board of Trade to make sure they see it (Instagram: @TRBOT, Twitter: @TorontoRBOT, LinkedIn: Toronto Region Board of Trade)
  • Throughout the campaign, the Toronto Region Board of Trade and other partners will be sharing the best photos on their social channels and website.
  • Five winning photos will be selected by random draw in November and winners will receive a $250 gift certificate to a downtown business of their choosing. The more posts you make, the more chances you have to win.

Bird Migration Safety

Seasonal bird migrations in Ontario last from March through June, and continue again from the end of August to the beginning of November.  It is common for flocks of birds to be attracted to lights from buildings and, sadly, millions of birds are injured or killed due to collisions with buildings (source: flap.org). While we understand that manypeople continue to work from home, please assist us where you can to help make our QuadReal office buildings flight-safe for birds.

 

The following are some simple and helpful techniques we're doing that you too can do for both your home – especially in high-rise towers - and office settings:

·When working late and, when localized light controls are available, please use task lighting (table or desk lamps) instead of overhead lights

·Close window curtains and blinds at night

·Turnoff non-critical exterior lighting during spring and fall bird migration seasons

·If surrounding greenery is reflected in your windows, consider a bird-deterrent window solution or move greenery away from windows

·Report a fallen bird at your home or workplace by calling Flap Canada at: 416.366.3527 or [email protected]
