City of Mississauga Facility and Program Changes in Response to New COVID-19 Restrictions

COVID-19 | October 9, 2020

In response to new provincial restrictions and recommendations from Region of Peel’s Medical Officer of Health, some of the City of Mississauga’s programs will be adjusted to help stop the spread of COVID-19.

“While I know today’s decision by the province is disappointing for many, especially our business community, it is being made to best protect the health and safety of Mississauga residents and all those across the Greater Toronto Area,” said Mayor Bonnie Crombie. “While our daily averages in Peel remain relatively stable at 60 to 100 cases a day, we know this can change at any moment. It takes just one lapse to undo all our hard work and push us into a second wave. It is up to all of us to protect the health of our family, friends and neighbours. In the weeks and months to come, I encourage all residents to rally behind our local businesses and support our Mississauga Made campaign by buying and shopping local. We need to continue to work together as team Mississauga and listen closely to the advice of our Chief Medical Officers of Health. We will get through this together.”

 

Beginning Saturday, October 10, the following changes will be in effect for some City facilities and programs:

  • registered and drop-in indoor fitness and dance classes
  • all weight room and fitness centre use
  • registered and drop-in team sport programming such as basketball, soccer and shinny
