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.
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.
