Here's when Mississauga and Brampton might be reopening
Looks like some plans are in place to open Mississauga and Brampton’s economy back up.
A senior government source says Ontario Premier Doug Ford will announce plans for a gradual reopening of the province's economy on Monday.
The government will transition regions back to a colour-coded restrictions system over three weeks, the source said. Until then, a stay-at-home order remains in effect. Here's a breakdown of the plan:
Feb. 10: The regions of Hastings Prince Edward; Kingston Frontenac and Lennox and Addington; Renfrew County and District; and Timiskaming are expected to enter the "green" category of the restrictions system. That will allow non-essential retailers to open, restaurants to offer indoor dining, and personal care services to open.
Week of Feb. 15: The province's remaining public health units will transition to the colour-coded restrictions system, save for three hot spots in the Greater Toronto Area. The category regions are placed in will depend on case rates at the time.
Week of Feb. 22: The hot spots of Toronto, Peel Region and York Region are expected to transition back to the colour-coded restrictions system.
