(Updated June 10, 2020)

The Town of Milton’s priority is the health and safety of our community and staff. Effective March 24, Mayor Krantz declared a State of Emergency in Milton. This action provided the Town of Milton with options to protect individuals and families living in Milton and help contain the spread of COVID-19. As a community, we must remain focused on following the guidelines set by the Ontario government and public health officials to keep flattening the curve.

The Town of Milton follows the advice and direction provided by the provincial and regional Medical Officers of Health and has enacted its emergency planning operations. All Town facilities including Town Hall are closed to the public to help protect the community from the spread of COVID-19 until July 5. We continue to serve you in many ways online or by phone.

Reopening Milton 

The Town of Milton is committed to and hopeful of returning to a new normal as we move to a recovery phase from the COVID-19 pandemic. While we move to a reopening phase across Ontario, residents must remain vigilant in following the provincial directives to reduce the spread of COVID-19.

The health and safety of our community and staff remains our top priority. In its framework, the Ontario government indicated that while restrictions may be loosened, businesses should only reopen if safe to do so.

As Town facilities and park amenities are closed and services are disrupted, it will take time to reopen after any provincial announcements are made. We must exercise due diligence as reopening will require new safety protocols for users and staff (as per the provincial health and safety standards), along with time to operationally return to an ‘open state’. View a complete list of amenities and their status.

We ask the community for your patience as the Town reviews these changes and ensures that reopening is safe.
