Peel mandates even stricter restrictions than Red - Control to slow spread of COVID-19

Mississauga, ON (November 7, 2020) - Because of a worsening pandemic picture, Dr. Lawrence Loh, Medical Officer of Health for the Region of Peel, today issued directives to the community that are stricter than those required for the Red – Control stage.

These directives have been introduced because indicators that track the pandemic in Peel are trending in the wrong direction. Case counts and test positivity rates remain high, public health capacity is stretched thin, and hospitals are at capacity with some procedures cancelled.

The measures in the directive will help stop the spread of COVID-19 and are effective at 12:01 a.m. Nov. 9, 2020, unless otherwise noted. They will remain in effect until further notice, except where noted, and will be re-evaluated every 14 days as the pandemic picture evolves:

All additional measures have been put in place under the authority of Ontario Regulation 263/20, Rules for Areas in Stage 2, s.2(2) (or as current).

"It is time to shrink our lives to stop COVID-19 from growing completely out of control. These directives are strict, but they are what is needed to keep people in Peel working and learning, and able to access food, medical care and the basics of everyday life. Together, the actions and sacrifices of Peel residents and businesses will stop the spread of COVID-19, help avoid a lockdown and ultimately save lives. We must take aggressive action now to get the pandemic under control in Peel."

– Dr. Lawrence Loh, Medical Officer of Health, Region of Peel – Public Health
