City of Mississauga Update: Government of Ontario Extends Enforcement of Stay-at-Home Order Until at Least June 2

COVID-19 | May 13, 2021

Today, the Government of Ontario extended the Stay-at-Home Order until at least June 2, 2021. The Stay-at-Home Order requires everyone to remain at home except for essential reasons, such as grocery shopping, going to the pharmacy, accessing health care services (including getting vaccinated), outdoor exercise or for work that cannot be done remotely.

“I know the news of an extension to the provincewide stay-at-home order is hard for so many of our residents and small businesses, as we have already sacrificed so much. It is my hope, however, that this additional time will allow us to get our case counts under control as we continue to vaccinate everyone 18 and older in the City and across Peel Region. This will help ensure we avoid a fourth wave of this pandemic,” said Mayor Bonnie Crombie. “I am disappointed, however, that the Province did not lift restrictions on outdoor recreation. The science is abundantly clear that these activities are safe if proper precautions are taken. I will continue advocating for these restrictions to be lifted.”
