(Updated Jan. 13, 2021)

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.

Active COVID-19 cases are currently increasing across Ontario. As a community we must do our part in reducing the spread of COVID and continue to be vigilant in our public health measures.

Emerging public health guidelines

On Jan. 12, 2021, the Province of Ontario declared a second State of Emergency, with additional public health guidelines effective on Jan. 14, 2021. The Town is reviewing these guidelines and will announce any related Town service impacts as soon as possible. Ontario remains in a province-wide shutdown, as declared on Dec. 26, 2020.

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.
