Brampton, ON (June 25, 2020) – The Region of Peel has released a plan for demobilization and recovery that will see a phased approach for a resumption of services, using Peel Public Health guidance.
“We are fully committed to the current response and know that the emergency response to COVID-19 must continue. At the same time, we are planning for the phased resumption of services that has been adjusted due to the pandemic response,” said Nancy Polsinelli, the Region’s Interim Chief Administrative Officer. “This complex work must begin now so that we can effectively plan for the return to resident-facing services with a flexible and adaptive approach.”
The Region’s plan is being guided by Peel Public Health and Ontario’s framework for reopening.
“We will continue to respond to the pandemic, and Peel Public Health is here to support our local situation and provide guidance to residents, businesses, and the Region,” said Medical Officer of Health Dr. Lawrence Loh. “A localized approach has been, and will continue to be, the right method to respond and recognize our unique needs and local realities of COVID-19.”
