City facilities reopening to the public in Brampton
Brampton is preparing to begin reopening City facilities.
Starting September 9, corporate facilities including City Hall will reopen to the public, albeit services will be offered by appointment only--no walk-ins.
Additionally, starting September 16, Council Chambers will reopen to the public and a maximum of 50 people will be allowed to attend meetings in-person by booking in advance.
The City will continue to provide online options for joining, presenting, and delegating at all Committee and City Council meetings as well.
Further, City recreation facilities, including Indoor pools, fitness amenities, and limited general programs, will reopen to the public starting September 7 by reservation only.
"Thank you to our community for their efforts in helping us get to this stage. We have continued to follow the advice of our public health experts through focusing on a cautious phased reopening and reintroduction of in-person services. While this is a new reality for us all, we are working to make this a safe and seamless transition for everyone," Mayor Patrick Brown said in a news release.
"Over the past few months, staff have been preparing our facilities for a safe reopening. We have introduced physical distancing measures, enhanced cleaning processes, a daily active screening for all employees and promoted remote work access. All of these efforts ensure we are keeping in line with public health guidelines without compromising on the service we provide our community," David Barrick, Brampton's Chief Administrative Officer, said in the same release.
