New and voluntary COVID-19 isolation centres open closer to home

Brampton, ON (January 15, 2021) – With support from provincial and federal funding sources, Peel Region will be opening a new, voluntary isolation site in Brampton today, in addition to our existing site in Mississauga which has been operational since March 2020. There will also be additional isolation centres opening as needed in the immediate future within Brampton and Mississauga, enabling more people to safely recover from COVID-19 in communities closer to home.

Isolation centres in Peel are available to all residents.

The Region’s isolation centres support people from all areas in Peel. They provide free, comfortable and private hotel facilities for anyone in need of a safe place to isolate during the COVID-19 pandemic. Transportation to and from the centre is provided, along with three meals daily and free Wi-Fi in the rooms to stay in touch with loved ones at home.
