Stay home as much as possible to help Mississauga slow the spread of COVID-19.
The following enforceable measures are required of Peel residents, businesses and organizations.
You should only have close contact with people in your household.
You also need to follow the Ontario’s Grey – Lockdown Level gathering restrictions:

How to protect yourself and others
Peel Public Health is asking everyone to follow these strong recommendations.
- This means only those who live in the same house/home should interact without the protection of distance or masks
- People in one household should not mix with people in another household
- Individuals who live alone are allowed to have close contact with one other household that should be exclusive to that individual living alone
- If a member of any household is experiencing symptoms, this individual must isolate from others in the household to protect others in the home
- If you have symptoms, contact your health care provider, Telehealth at 1-866-797-0000, or Peel Public Health at 905-799-7700
- Do not interact with people who don’t live with you, unless it’s for essential reasons
- The fewer interactions outside the household, the better
- Essential reasons for leaving the house include:
- Purchasing necessities such as groceries, household items, food, drinks, and gasoline
- Vehicle maintenance
- Emergency reasons (to prevent risk of injury or harm)
- Emergency repairs
- Renovations or construction
- One-to-one teaching and instruction, such as tutoring
- School learning pods
- Real estate needs
When interacting with anyone who doesn’t live with you or who isn’t an essential caregiver, follow the Core Four actions:
- Stay two metres apart from anyone who doesn’t live with you or who isn’t an essential caregiver
- Wash your hands often with soap and water or use hand sanitizer
- Wear a non-medical mask when it’s difficult to maintain physical distance and where masks are mandatory
- Get tested if you think you have COVID-19 or have been exposed to it. While waiting for test results, stay home, self-isolate, and prevent potential spread.
