**************************************




Effective July 10, City Council has approved a by-law that requires face coverings be worn in all indoor public spaces in Mississauga to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. 

Children age two and under and people with disabilities or other medical conditions that prevent them from wearing a face covering will not be required to wear one.

Region of Peel Public Health continues to recomment four core actions; maintain physical distance, wash your hands, wear a mask and get tested if you're unwell.


The City's new by-law will require businesses to have a policy in place and to prominently display their rules. It will apply to all indoor public spaces that are open and accessible including:

* retail stores
* shopping malls
* restaurants
* businesses that primarily sell food including supermarkets, grocery stores, bakeries and convenience stores
* churches, mosques and other places of worship, except during a religious rite or ceremony that is incompatible with the face being covered
* indoor sports and recreational facilities
* shopping malls or similar structure which contains multiple places of business
* commercial establishments providing personal care services that are permitted to open under the Emergency Orders
* common areas of hotels and motels and other short term accommodations, such as lobbies, elevators, meeting rooms or other common use facilities, but not the common areas of residential apartments buildings or condominiums
* libraries, museums, galleries and other similar facilities
* banquet halls, conventions centres, arenas, stadiums and other event spaces
* concert venues, theatres, cinemas, casinos and other entertainment establishments
* premises utilized as an open house, presentation centre, or other facility for real estate purposes
* MiWay buses, taxis and private vehicles for hire such as Uber and Lyft
* Municipal buildings
* other businesses that are permitted to operate in accordance with the    Emergency Orders

Cyclists Please Ring Your Bell

As many residents are out and social distancing while walking the many paths in Ward 8, there are unfortunate complaints about cyclists not using their bell while passing pedestrians on pathways and trails.

Please be reminded to ring your bell to alert walkers of your presence so that they can safely move out of the way or simply not be scared as some walkers have headphones on and may not be aware of the bicycles approaching.

Please be mindful of others and courteous to all.  

*************************************************************

One of the most prevenalant complaints these last few months has been noisy vehicles and speeding.

This in enforced by Peel Police and they have issued tickets and removed keys from many motorists. The noise issue is very hard to enforce and our Bylaw officers cannot stop vehicles.
 
Peel Regional Police have implemented a program aimed to stop street racing on our streets. The E.R.A.S.E. Program (Eliminating Racing Activities on Streets Everywhere) targets poor driver behaviour through education and strategic enforcement.
 
Residents are reminded to do their part to abide by the rules of the road and keep themselves and others safe. If you observe aggressive driving or speed racing activities, please report those instances to the police by calling 905-453-3311 or
