City Council has approved amendments to the temporary Mask By-law and Physical Distancing By-law to extend both to expire June 30, 2022.  They were set to expire on Dec. 31, 2021.

Mayor Meed Ward – she wasn’t always a mask advocate – but she caught on quickly.

Council has removed Community Centre from the physical distancing requirement in the Physical Distancing By-law as those requirements are regulated under other provincial legislation.

As the pandemic evolves, Council has the ability to pass a motion at any time to revoke these by-laws.  The expiry date of June 30 can be repealed in March should COVID-19 conditions be favourable and the Province lifts their mask mandate.

This does not mean that levels of health and safety protections will be reduced in these City facilities or that physical distancing will not be maintained.

Quick Facts:

  • The By-laws were implemented in an effort to reduce the spread of COVID-19 and protect the health and safety of the community
  • The amendments in 2020 to the City’s temporary Mask By-law were made for consistency with Halton Region’s Mask By-law
