The City’s roadmap to COVID-19 recovery will be going before the mayor’s executive committee Wednesday.

The report from the city manager outlines a number of recommendations to best position the city for pandemic recovery.

Among the 83 recommendations are to address the wide ranging impacts of systemic racism, and to point out the disproportionate impacts that COVID-19 has had on racialized and Indigenous communities.

The economic impacts of the pandemic are also to be discussed, as the City projects $1.8 billion in lost revenue by the end of the year.

This comes as Toronto has reverted back to modified Stage 2 restrictions — which include the closure of indoor dining and indoor gyms, casinos, cinemas, and interactive exhibits — due to rising COVID-19 cases.
