Brampton to give COVID-19 update at town hall teleconference

Brampton will host a virtual town hall meeting on Wednesday (April 13) to help residents stay informed about the latest COVID-19 updates as the number of cases are on the rise.

The city will highlight the work of its COVID-19 Task Forces and outline how Brampton plans to transition community pandemic supports through city services and community social support networks.

The town hall will run from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. and anyone wanting to attend is asked to register at

Tele Town Hall attendees will include representatives from Peel Public Health, William Osler Health System, Brampton Fire and Emergency Services, Peel Regional Police Services, and Peel Regional Paramedic Services.

Mayor Patrick Brown and the City’s COVID-19 Task Force leads will also be in attendance.

The city says it is focused on health and safety as it continues to gradually and safely reopen, and thanked residents for doing their part throughout the pandemic by physically distancing, practising good hygiene, getting vaccinated and wearing masks to help stop the spread of COVID-19.

While pandmeic restrictions have lifted in Brampton and across Ontario, the province recorded a 40 per cent spike in COVID-19 cases last week.

Wastewater surveillance suggests cases have been on the rise since mid- to late March, and the scientific director of Ontario’s panel of COVID-19 advisers has said the latest wastewater data suggest daily cases are around 100,000 to 120,000.

Ontario’s top doctor is set to speak on Monday about the COVID-19 situation in the province and provide and update on access to antiviral treatments in the province.
