Barbershops, salons and outdoor fitness set to reopen in Mississauga and Brampton


Published March 26, 2021 at 6:30 pm


Residents in Mississauga and Brampton will soon be able to get a haircut and have other personal needs attended to.

The Ontario government has just announced the loosening of some grey-zone restrictions which will allow personal care operations such as hair and nail salons, tattoo parlours and barbershops to re-open on April 12.

As well, outdoor fitness classes will be able to take place as early as next week.

The change in the regulations come even though COVID-19 cases continue to rise in Peel Region and the region still remains in the grey lockdown zone in the provincial government’s framework.

When the personal care services reopen, they will have to operate on an appointment basis and never be at more than 25 per cent capacity (or allow a maximum of five patrons at a time, whichever is less). 

As for the outdoor fitness classes, they will be allowed with only a maximum of 10 people being able to take part.

In other measures that will see some grey zone restrictions lifted by the end of the month, religious services, weddings and funeral will be allowed based on whether two-metre physical distancing can be maintained. Up until now, these services have been restricted to the number of people that can attend.

Marinas, such as the one in Port Credit, will also be allowed to open clubhouses and outdoor dining facilities.
