Mississauga. Strong. Ready.

COVID-19 recovery

We’re taking steps to reopen Mississauga safely with support from Peel Public Health and government partners.




Help stop the spread

Your actions have helped Mississauga flatten the curve and slow the spread of the virus.

Continue to take these simple actions to help reduce your exposure and protect others:

  • Wear a face covering or face mask in all indoor public spaces, as required by the City’s by-law
  • Create a safe social circle of no more than 10 people
  • Stay at least two metres (six feet) away from others who are not in your social circle
  • Wash your hands with soap and water or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer
  • Don’t touch your eyes, mouth and nose
  • Sneeze and cough into a tissue or your sleeve or elbow
  • Avoid contact with people who are sick and their items
  • If you feel sick, stay home and get tested for COVID-19

Mandatory face coverings

A new City by-law requires everyone to wear a face covering or mask in indoor public spaces.

Wearing a face covering is an additional measure to take to reduce the spread of COVID-19 and keep each other safe. This by-law will be in effect until October 1, 2020.

View more information about the mandatory face covering by-law.

Social gatherings

Ontario recently announced indoor gathering limits of 50 people and outdoor gathering limits of 100 people. You still need to stay at least two metres/six feet away from people who are not in your household.

The only exceptions are:

  • Operating Child Care Centres that are supporting front line workers and first responders provided the number is not higher than 50
  • Funerals are allowed to have up to 50 people indoors or 30% of  the room’s capacity
  • Places of worship are allowed with no more than 30% of the building capacity and with physical distancing in place
  • Wedding ceremonies can be held in an indoor facility with attendance at 30% capacity. An outdoor ceremony can have no more than 100 people. Civil ceremonies officiated by the City of Mississauga officiants can hold a maximum of 10 including the officiant and couple to be married.

Report gatherings of more than 50 people indoors or 100 people outdoors to 311 (905-615-4311 outside City limits).  Security or a By-law Officer will investigate the complaint and may lay charges when appropriate.

Practise the core four actions

Wearing a face covering is part of the core four actions supported by Peel Public Health to help stop the spread of COVID-19:

  • Maintain physical distance
  • Wash your hands
  • Wear a face covering or mask
  • Stay home if ill and get tested
