City of Brampton taking health and safety measures amid COVID-19 concerns
The City of Brampton is working closely with Peel Public Health and other community and GTHA partners to take precautionary measures in order to protect residents and prevent the spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus).
COVID-19 causes a respiratory illness that can spread from person-to-person.
Symptoms can range from mild to severe and can include fever, cough and shortness of breath.
Those who are ill are advised to stay home, as with any illness.
It’s also important to avoid contact with others who are ill and to wash hands regularly, as well as cover coughs and sneezes.
The City is following the direction and advice of Peel Public Health and is taking steps to help protect the health of the community.
Some steps they are taking include increased frequency of cleaning and disinfecting hard surfaces and seats in buses, facilities and terminals for Brampton Transit, the cancellation of some events from external event partners and increased frequency of cleaning and disinfecting facilities and public counters.
Handwashing signage has also been placed in washrooms and hand-sanitizing stations have been placed at all facility entrances and washrooms.
While the current risk remains low in Peel, Brampton Fire and Emergency Services have created an internal team to liaise with City stakeholders, the Ontario Fire Marshal and emergency services partners in order to be prepared for the impact of COVID-19.
