Indoor events, including weddings, funerals, and theatres, can now seat 50 per cent capacity with proof of vaccination, according to Northern Health.

On Tuesday, the health authority announced that the health order on gatherings and events had been updated, effective at midnight. The public health orders were also given an expiry date of January 31st, 2022.

There can now be 10 fully-vaccinated people inside a residence, up from five, and up to 25 outside, up from 15.

Instead of a limit of 100 people, outdoor events can now allow half their capacity if guests are fully vaccinated.

Alongside virtual services, drive-in worship services are now allowed.

The region added 56 COVID-19 cases on Tuesday, dropping the active case count to 337, and 426 vaccine doses were given.

The total dose count now sits at 404,979. Of those, 186,215 are second doses, and 16,337 are other doses.
