COVID-19 | November 20, 2020
Today, as announced by the Government of Ontario, Mississauga, as part of the Region of Peel, was placed in the Grey-Lockdown Level of the Government of Ontario’s Keeping Ontario Safe and Open Framework as of Monday November 23, 2020.
Measures under Lockdown include, but are not limited to:
“We are seeing the result of rising numbers and outbreaks and have been brought into the highest category of Grey-Lockdown,” said Mayor Bonnie Crombie. “We continue to see a significant amount of community spread as our numbers have continued to climb over the month despite continued efforts and warnings. The second wave of COVID-19 has hit Peel Region harder than anywhere else in the country and we are taking necessary action. It is regrettable we are seeing the closures of non-essential businesses and our facilities but we hope this will help to stop the spread and keep residents safe and healthy.”
The Government of Ontario’s decision to place Peel Region in the Lockdown Level comes as the situation has become critical. Case counts remain high and continue to trend upwards, with the test positivity rate now being the highest in the province.
At the Lockdown Level, broader-scale measures and restrictions, across multiple sectors, have been put in effect to control the transmission of COVID-19. If you have questions about what will be open or impacts to businesses or employment, call the Stop the Spread Business Information Line at 1-888-444-3659.
