(Updated Nov. 13, 2020)

The Town of Milton’s priority is the health and safety of our community and staff. As the global pandemic continues, Milton remains in a State of Emergency.

COVID active cases are currently increasing across Ontario. As a community we must do our part in reducing the spread of COVID and continuing to be vigilant in our public health measures.

Emerging Public Health guidelines:

The Town of Milton follows the direction of the Government of Ontario's COVID-19 Response Framework and Halton Region's Medical Officer of Health. On Friday, Nov. 13, 2020, the Province revised the thresholds related to each public health unit region's classification

As of Nov. 16, 2020, at 12:01 a.m., Milton (Halton Region) is in the Control (red) level of the response framework. 

As a reminder to our community, as new measures are introduced, the Town requires time to review, assess and implement the new measures.

Additionally, Dr. Meghani, Halton Region's Medical Officer of Health recommends the following as enhanced measures to keep our community healthy:

  • Stay home, except for essential purposes such as going to work or school, buying essentials such as groceries, and attending medical appointments
  • Maintain a physical distance of two metres (six feet) from those outside their household. Those that live alone may join one designated household.
  • Avoid all social gatherings such as play dates, birthday parties, and dinner parties with friends or family

Do your part

  • Stay home if you are sick
  • If you have COVID-19 symptoms or have been in contact with a positive case, get tested
  • Have close contact only with individuals in your household
  • Wash hands frequently
  • Cover coughs and sneezes
  • Avoid touching your eyes and mouth
  • In public indoor spaces, wear a face covering or non-medical mask
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces
  • Avoid all non-essential travel outside of Canada
  • Download the COVID Alert App

Serving you in new and safe ways

Many Town services and programs continue in an altered format and most facilities have reopened, within COVID-19 public health guidelines. We continue to serve you in many ways online or by phone.

View a list of programs and facilities and their status.

Before visiting Town Hall or any Town facilities, please complete the following self-screening questionnaire: 

• Are you experiencing any symptoms such as fever, cough, difficulty breathing?
• Have you traveled outside Canada in the last 14 days?
• Have you or someone you have been in close contact with tested positive for COVID-19 within the last 14 days?
• Have you been in close contact with someone who is being tested or has exhibited symptoms?

If you answered YES to any of the above questions, please do not enter a Town of Milton facility. This checklist is not meant to take the place of medical advice, diagnosis or treatment.

We must exercise due diligence and implement the required new safety protocols for users and staff, as per the provincial health and safety standards. We ask for the community’s patience as you experience our services in a new way.
