Updated: Emergency declaration in Oakville has ended

Wednesday, March 16, 2022

On Friday, March 11, 2022, the Town of Oakville ended Oakville's Declaration of Emergency, which was issued two years ago at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The province also recently announced it is removing the mandatory masking requirement in most settings on March 21 and Regional Council is expected to make a decision on repealing the Regional Mask By-law at a Special Council Meeting now scheduled for Saturday, March 19 at 10:30 a.m. 

As the province continues to reopen and key public health indicators continue to improve or remain stable, the town will remain in line with provincial and regional direction and regulations. Please follow us on our Twitter and Facebook accounts for updates to town programs and services.

Residents are also reminded to follow public health guidance such as:

“A state of emergency for the town is no longer necessary as the province continues on its reopening path and key public health indicators are showing improvement or remaining stable in Oakville and across Ontario. The next little while will be a transition period for our community and as we make more progress, I encourage residents to remain kind, considerate and respectful of each other.”

Mayor Rob Burton
