More public health measures have been lifted in Oakville and across Ontario as the province moves into the next phase of its reopening plan.
As of February 17 at 12:01 a.m. gathering limits have increased to 50 people indoors and 100 people outdoors and organized public events are limited to 50 people indoors with no limit to outdoors. The Town of Oakville will continue to take a gradual approach to increasing capacity limits and reopening services and facilities to ensure the safety of staff and residents. Recreation and Culture facilities will remain under the two-metre distancing requirement.
While province-wide vaccination efforts continue, the province will remain in this temporary step until March 1 when the province intends to ease more public health measures, including lifting capacity limits in all remaining indoor public settings. Residents are reminded that all public health measures remain in effect. Proof of vaccination with a QR code, COVID-19 health screening, and physical distancing from those outside your household is still required at this time. Masks are still required at all times indoors except when exercising.
At this time, Town Hall is closed to the public, including Service Oakville, all service counters, and meeting and event spaces, with the exception of appointments for marriage licences and Proof of Life forms. Please check our website for updates next week on when Town Hall will reopen. Residents and businesses are encouraged to continue using the town’s online services where possible.
“Please remember to follow all public health measures and regulations that are in place to keep everyone safe so we can continue on this reopening path. Getting fully vaccinated if you haven’t done so already will also help us stay on this path and reduce the strain on our local health system and dedicated frontline staff.”
– Mayor Rob Burton
