News release: March 25, 2021

Good Friday holiday service hours at the Region of Peel

Brampton, ON (March 25, 2021) – Region of Peel offices and non-emergency services will be closed for Good Friday on Friday, April 2, 2021.

As the Region of Peel continues to support efforts to stop the spread of COVID-19, certain regional facilities and services remain affected until further notice. Over the Easter holiday, let's continue to take care of each other. Peel's case counts are rising, and variants of concern are in our community. As Peel's vaccine roll-out continues we must not let our guard down and continue to follow public health advice. This remains our best defense. Take care of each other over Easter by only gathering with those you live with. For family and friends who live outside your home, take photos and arrange virtual calls to stay connected and maintain physical distance. Ask your place of worship for virtual gathering options to reduce the risk of spread. If you plan to worship in-person, there are gathering limits for religious services.

Vaccination clinics
Vaccination clinics will continue to be open, by appointment only, for those who are eligible to receive the vaccine.
