Office of the Mayor and Council Update
Friday June 12 COVID-19 emergency
Today the Provincial Government introduced the idea of social circles to Ontarians. Advised by the Chief Medical Officer of Health Dr. Williams, adding these circles to our lives will improve our mental health.

It's news that will excite many, especially since the whole province can participate.

As pictured here, there are rules that everyone in your circle needs to follow. It needs to be exclusive and everyone in it needs to stick to just that circle. This will help keep everyone safe.

Outside of our circles we can gather in groups of up to 10 starting today as long as we still maintain physical distancing. That means we need to keep a two-metre distance from anyone outside of our social circle.

You should also keep in mind my three Cs of COVID-19 caution : avoid c rowds, c onfined spaces, and c irculation.

As the province shifts from community protection to individual protection we'll see more changes ahead. That change could come for Oakville, and Halton, as early as next week with the Premier announcing today that he'll have an announcement Monday about the areas currently excluded from Stage 2 reopening.

We've come so far in this journey together and I believe that our way through it is together as well with mutual respect for each other and an understanding of keeping everyone safe.

For a reminder of how far we've come and a look at where we're headed in recovery, please see the updated timeline at the end of this email.

Face masks don’t even have to work especially well to be effective
But to stop the pandemic, they have to be combined with lockdowns.

There has been reason to think masks would at least be somewhat effective, based on studies of the spread of droplets of material we expel while coughing or sneezing. And  a recent analysis  suggested a large group of individual studies collectively pointed to their effectiveness. But that analysis left a large degree of uncertainty about how effective they'd be at the population level and how face mask use would interact with other policy decisions.

Oakville and Halton
Town of Oakville announcements
You'll need a mask on Oakville Transit
Fares and front door boarding resume July 2

Following the strong recommendation of Halton Public Health and the Governments of Ontario and Canada, effective July 2, non-medical masks or face coverings will be mandatory when travelling on Oakville Transit to help keep customers and operators safe during the COVID-19 pandemic.
 
Children under the age of two, people with disabilities or other medical conditions that prevent them from wearing any mask will not be required to wear one. It’s important to remember, not all disabilities or medical conditions are visible. Fare collection and front door boarding for all customers will also resume on July 2.
 
In addition, in an effort to protect passengers and drivers from COVID-19, Oakville Transit is installing protective driver shields around the bus operator cab on all conventional buses so customers can board and pay fares at the front.
 
“As we move forward in our economic recovery, we want to safely move people around town. Oakville Transit’s extensive safety measures will help ensure public transit is a safe option for everyone while helping our town recover much-needed revenue with front door boarding,” said Mayor Rob Burton .
In advance of the resumption of fare collection, PRESTO customers are strongly encouraged to load their cards online and can visit prestocard.ca to learn about how, and where to go, to load a PRESTO card.
 
Alternatively, the town will reopen the ServiceOakville counter at Town Hall starting July 2 to provide customers with the opportunity to purchase or load a PRESTO card, as well a buy SPLIT passes. Customers are asked to please consider using debit or credit cards to encourage contactless payment. The counter will be open Monday to Friday, from 8:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m., until further notice with appropriate health protocols and physical distancing measures in place.
 
With the introduction of mandatory use of non-medical masks or face coverings by passengers all conventional buses will operate at 50 per cent seated capacity to continue to encourage physical distancing. Oakville Transit supports the physical distancing efforts recommended by public health officials but realizes it’s not always possible on public transit.
 
“The health and safety of our customers and transit operators is our top priority,” said Barry Cole, director, Oakville Transit. “While we have put several measures in place to ensure a safer commute when travelling on Oakville Transit, we want to remind our customers to not use transit if you are not well, continue practising physical distancing when and where possible, limit transit use to essential travel only and wear your face covering. Together, we can stop the spread of COVID-19.”
Summer students returning to cut grass

Summer students are returning on Monday, June 15 to support parks grass cutting efforts. With the students returning we should be back to near normal levels (8-10 days) within three or four weeks depending on the amount of rain we get. 
Dealing with geese differently this year

The timing of the goose round up is determined by when the flocks are going through a molting process, which results in the loss of their flight feathers for about six weeks. This is the only time that the round up can be conducted safely. The normal timing of the round up occurred during the height of the pandemic. The town could not safely conduct the round up this year due to reduced levels of staff and inability to manage physical distancing within the team.

To undertake the relocation, it requires approximately 50 staff to herd the birds. To keep them in a tight circle, staff have work side-by-side. Geese are then often held in a large area until they are loaded onto a livestock truck. We did not want put that number of staff in such tight quarters for health and safety reasons. The City of Mississauga, our partner in this initiative also cancelled their relocation program this year for the same reasons.

Student crews will start on Monday, June 15 and will begin the power washing of walkways at that time, resulting in a noticeable improvement. 

The role of the Parks Ambassadors is to educate the public on the provincial requirements on social distancing and congregation limits which remain in place. As the Province allows the opening of facilities, the town will be gradually ending this program and returning staff to the services and operations begin reinstated.
Next week at Regional Council
1. QEW closure by Ministry of Transportation Friday June 26 eastbound for realigned QEW structure over 403 10 pm to 10 am Saturday June 27
 
  • Please be advised that the Ministry of Transportation has scheduled a full closure of Highway 403 eastbound at the QEW in the Town of Oakville in order to facilitate the ongoing construction of the realigned QEW structure over Highway 403 that was previously removed. The Highway 403 eastbound closure will be in place Friday, June 26, 2020 from 10:00 p.m. to Saturday, June 27 at 10:00 a.m

2. Memorandum from the Commissioner and Medical Officer of Health re: Tobacco Use and COVID-19

  • Tobacco, vaping product, and waterpipe users are at greater risk of contracting COVID19 than are non-users
  • When tobacco smoke or vaping product aerosol is inhaled, chemicals damage the lungs and weaken the immune response. This can allow viruses such as COVID-19 to enter the lungs more easily, and increases the chance of contracting respiratory infections
  • Despite media claims that tobacco and/or nicotine use can reduce the risk of COVID-19, there is currently no scientific evidence linking tobacco or nicotine to the prevention or treatment of COVID-19
  • The second meeting of the Youth Vaping Roundtable will be held on Wednesday June 24, 2020 organised by MP Pam Damoff
 
3.Services for Seniors Accreditation Award Halton Region received Three-Year, highest level of accreditation available from CARF.

  • On February 25, 2020 Halton Region was notified that they received a Three-Year Accreditation award- the highest level of accreditation available from CARF.
  • CARF noted, “On balance, Halton Region demonstrated substantial conformance to the standards. Halton Region has many strengths and has demonstrated a high level of conformance to the CARF standards.”
  • In their feedback, the Surveyors identified that:
  • the organizational leadership team values and empowers its employees;
  • staff members are compassionate in their delivery of care and are strongly connected to persons served;
  • the organization benefits from a continuous quality improvement team that works diligently to engage home-level experts and to nurture the culture of quality they have established;

  • community partners are seamlessly integrated in
  • Only one area of recommendation was identified by CARF relating to fundraising management
  • As a result, the Division is required to develop additional processes and procedures for fundraising, which align with CARF’s standards
 
4. Blue Box transition update
  • Recommends that the Province of Ontario maintain Resource Productivity and Recovery Authority and ensure that it is appropriately staffed and resourced and that stringent waste diversion targets are set and achieved
  • Halton Region requests April 1, 2025 for the transition of Blue Box program to full producer responsibility
  • Halton interested in providing collection services should there be mutually agreeable terms with Producers given the benefits of the current integrated solid waste management system

Ontario
Provincial Government announcements
People throughout Ontario are being encouraged to establish a social "circle" of no more than 10 people who can interact and come into close contact with one another without physical distancing. Dr. David Williams, Ontario's Chief Medical Officer of Health, updated public health advice to come into effect immediately province-wide to allow social circles of up to 10 members, including those outside the immediate household. Social circles will support the mental health and well-being of Ontarians and help reduce social isolation.

Ontarians who wish to form a safe social circle should follow these five simple steps:
  1. Start with your current circle: the people you live with or who regularly come into your household;
  2. If your current circle is under 10 people, you can add members to your circle, including those from another household, family members or friends;
  3. Get agreement from everyone that they will join the circle;
  4. Keep your social circle safe. Maintain physical distancing with anyone outside of your circle; and
  5. Be true to your circle. No one should be part of more than one circle.

The province has developed a practical  step-by-step  guide to help Ontarians as they safely develop and join a social circle.

"Ontarians should think of their circles as the people they can touch, hug and come into close contact as we continue our shared fight against COVID-19," said Minister Elliott. "While this is an exciting step forward, every Ontarian should follow the advice provided by our public health experts to ensure they do so safely and in a way that limits the spread of this virus, including and especially by only being part of one circle. We all owe it to each other to act responsibly."

The rules for social circles are different from the proposed expansion of social gatherings from five to 10 people. Social gatherings can be any 10 people from outside your household, but where physical distancing of at least two metres should be maintained. For example, the expansion of social gatherings enables individuals and families to enjoy the company of others at backyard barbeques and picnics in neighbourhood parks, while respecting physical distancing advice.

On the other hand, social circles will enable Ontarians to enjoy close contact with members of their circle. This could include hugging, carpooling, enjoying a patio and sharing a meal without staying two metres apart. Ontarians should avoid close-contact activities with anyone outside of their circle if they are unable to maintain physical distancing. Social circles will also bring back supports from people outside of their household who can now help with children, seniors or those in need.

While physical distancing does not need to be practised between members of the same social circle, other public health advice, including frequent hand washing, should be maintained. Anyone who is ill or feeling sick should immediately limit their contact with anyone in their circle, inform the other members of the circle, self-isolate, and seek testing if they have COVID-19 symptoms, by visiting one of the  145 assessment centres  across Ontario. They should also seek testing if they are concerned that they might have been exposed to COVID-19 or be at risk.
With the supply of many drugs and medications having stabilized in the province, the Ontario government is lifting the recommended 30-day supply limit for dispensing Ontario Drug Benefit program medications. Effective June 15, 2020, program recipients can return to filling up to 100-day supply at a time from their pharmacy or dispensing physician, when appropriate.
Ontario Drug Benefit recipients' co-payments will return to their previous amounts. People are encouraged to buy the medications they need in reasonable quantities. This will help ensure that everyone can get their prescriptions filled as we continue to try to stop the spread of COVID-19. The province will continue to monitor the situation to ensure there are no disruptions to the drug supply chain in the future.
The Ontario government is investing $1 million to improve access to healthy meals and snacks for school-age children and youth during the COVID-19 outbreak. As a result of the province-wide school closures, the Student Nutrition Program has had to find new ways to support families experiencing increased food insecurity.

The Student Nutrition Program is delivered in partnership with local agencies, school boards and community partner organizations and supported by countless volunteers. Over the past few months, the program has been adapted to include new local approaches to meal delivery, including distributing grocery gift cards or farm vouchers, delivering food boxes, meal kits or frozen meals and supporting food banks to provide nutritious items to families with school-age children.
The Ontario government has appointed Cathy Fooks as Ontario's new Patient Ombudsman to help improve the quality of care and supports people receive in hospitals, long-term care homes and in their own homes through home and community care.

The Patient Ombudsman provides support for Ontarians who have voiced concerns about their health care experience. The Ombudsman also investigates unresolved complaints about public hospitals, long-term care homes and home and community care, and makes recommendations to the government to prevent the recurrence of similar issues.

In this role, Ms. Fooks will also oversee an investigation into the care and health care experiences of long-term care home residents during COVID-19. This work will complement the government's independent commission into Ontario's long-term care system which will begin in July 2020.  
Here's what changes in Ontario as COVID-19 restrictions are loosened 
Ontario eases some of its COVID-19 emergency restrictions on Friday, with certain changes taking effect everywhere in the province and others happening only in regions approved for Stage 2 of the government's reopening plan.

Canada
Federal Government announcements
Temperature screening to be required for travellers at Canadian airports
Today, the Minister of Transport, the Honourable Marc Garneau, announced an additional measure to this framework. The Government of Canada will now require temperature screenings for all passengers travelling to Canada or travellers departing Canadian airports for either international or domestic destinations.

For international flights to Canada, air operators must conduct temperature screenings at the point of departure, unless the local authority has an equivalent measure in place, in addition to the existing required health check questions for symptoms prior to boarding.

Within Canada, Canadian Air Transport Security Authority screeners will conduct the temperature screening of passengers as part of departure screening procedures. This is in addition to the health screening questions and the wearing of face coverings that are already required for all passengers.

The Government of Canada is taking a phased approach to implementing temperature screening.
  • Phase 1: By June 30, 2020, all air operators will be required to conduct temperature screenings of all passengers travelling to Canada prior to departure from international or transborder points of departure.
  • Phase 2: By the end of July, temperature screening stations will be placed in the departure section of the four major airports that are currently identified as the only Canadian airports for international travel (Montréal, Toronto, Calgary, Vancouver).
  • Phase 3: By September 2020, temperature screening stations will be in place in the departure sections of the next 11 busiest airports in Canada (St. John’s, Halifax, Québec City, Ottawa, Toronto – Billy Bishop, Winnipeg, Regina, Saskatoon, Edmonton, Kelowna, Victoria).

In addition, all employees and personnel that enter or work in the restricted area of the airport will be subject to temperature screening procedures by Canadian Air Transport Security Authority personnel.

All passengers who have an elevated temperature and do not have a medical certificate to explain a medical or physical condition that would result in an elevated temperature, will not be permitted to continue their travel and will be asked to re-book after 14 days.
What to watch for in Alberta's reopening
Alberta restaurants, bars, lounges and cafes will no longer be limited to half capacity starting today, although they will still have to follow distancing rules and seat no more than six people per table.

In Calgary, indoor recreation, fitness and sports facilities can also reopen, including gyms, arenas and pools.

Calgary Mayor Naheed Nenshi said not to expect any city-run facilities to be running today, aside from perhaps some outdoor dry pads for sports like ball hockey.

“We laid off 15 per cent of our staff. We didn’t hire our seasonal workers,” he said. “You can’t turn around on a dime. When the province announces on Tuesday, you just can’t have all those people hired by Friday.”

The City of Edmonton is reviewing how recreation centres, arenas, pools and libraries may open and says they might be phased in over time or continue on hold.

“The reopening of facilities is very complex and given the financial impacts of the pandemic, some services will not return this season,” the city said.

Libraries are allowed to unlock their doors, as well, but Calgary is waiting until June 23 to reopen in three locations. If that goes well, more branches will be added in the following weeks.

Also today, health services such as acupuncture, massage and reflexology can take clients, as can nail, skin and tanning salons.

Movie theatres, bingo halls, team sports and casinos (minus table games) are also set to reopen.
International news
Norway keeps travel restrictions from Sweden
Norway’s government says it is keeping travel restrictions in place for visitors from Sweden, which did not impose a lockdown during the coronavirus pandemic.

Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg said Friday that the more than 1,600-kilometre-long border between the Scandinavian countries would remain closed.

Solberg said the sole exception would be Gotland, a Swedish island in the Baltic Sea where the reproduction rate of infections was low.

She said: “I realize this is a big disappointment. But the restrictions are based on objective criteria that are the same for everyone.”

Unlike in most European countries, Swedish authorities advised residents to practice social distancing and only banned gatherings of more than 50 people. The nation’s schools, bars and restaurants never closed during the pandemic.
India has fourth-highest coronavirus caseload
India’s coronavirus caseload has become the fourth-highest in the world, overtaking Britain, by adding 10,956 new cases in yet another biggest single-day spike.

India’s two-month lockdown kept transmission low but in a large population of 1.3 billion, people remain susceptible and the campaign against the virus is likely to go on for months, Balram Bhargava, director-general of the Indian Council of Medical Research, said.

India’s lockdown was imposed nationwide in late March but has eased since, and it is now largely being enforced in high-risk areas. The spiking caseload came after India allowed reopening of shops, shopping malls, manufacturing and religious places.

Subway, schools, colleges and movie halls, however, remain shuttered nationwide.

Why daycare operators and parents say province's reopening plan is premature
After Tuesday's surprise announcement, many daycare operators say they haven't had enough time to plan to reopen safely. They also expect costs to rise significantly, because they cannot operate at full capacity or charge parents more to care for their children.
