Despite a recent dip in the number of new COVID-19 cases, Mississauga residents are reminded to stay vigilant when it comes to mitigating the spread of COVID-19.
During a press conference, Mayor Bonnie Crombie implored residents to continue to abide by the Province’s stay-at-home order, to ensure businesses and schools in the city can reopen in the coming weeks and months.
While Crombie lauded the efforts of most residents, she also noted that some have been caught violating the order.
“While the vast majority of residents are playing their part in helping us get there, there are some people who clearly think the rules don’t apply to them,” she said in a press conference.
According to Crombie, 38 tickets were issued by enforcement officers to people who were found to be in violation of the order over the past week.
“So many residents have made enormous sacrifices for the collective good—we simply won’t tolerate those who intentionally, and flagrantly break the rules,” she said.
Crombie further emphasized the fact that, while cases have been trending down, it does not mean things can return to business as usual, especially considering the arrival of the more contagious U.K. strain of the virus.
“The situations at our hospitals, while improving, still remains very serious,” she said. “We cannot let our guards down, for even a second.”insauga's Editorial Standards and Policies
