Today, the City of Brampton declared a State of Emergency amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
Following consultation with City Council and on the recommendation of the City's Emergency Management Team, Mayor Patrick Brown declared this in accordance with the City's Emergency Management Plan.
This is another significant step that the City is taking in support of both Ontario's and the Region of Peel's efforts to help contain the spread of the COVID-19 virus.
The City of Brampton will continue to support the public by providing essential services, including Brampton Transit, Fire and Emergency Services and By-law and Enforcement in order to ensure emergency service access across the City.
