COVID-19 | February 15, 2022

On February 17, the City of Mississauga will lift capacity limits in all community centres, culture facilities and museums following yesterday’s announcement moving Ontario to the next phase of reopening. Capacity limits will remain in place for entertainment and sporting venues at 50 per cent in accordance with new Provincial regulations.

“I want to thank all Mississauga residents who took the time to get vaccinated and boosted, and for doing their part to help us get to the point where the Province can further ease public health measures,” said Mayor Bonnie Crombie. “It’s been a long road, but we’re finally turning the corner. I encourage all residents to visit our City facilities, but to also keep making responsible choices, including isolating when they have symptoms and of course getting vaccinated and boosted when they’re eligible.”

The Province also announced its intention to lift proof of vaccination in public settings as of March 1, 2022. Once the Provincial Regulations are received, the City of Mississauga will review and information on the impact to City services will follow.

On February 17 the following City services will be adjusted:

  • Capacities at all community centre, cultural facilities and museums will return to standard limits, including fitness centres, arenas, pools and gymnasiums, with the exception of spectator areas which will remain limited to 50 per cent.
