Mississauga residents to receive phone call from Mayor Crombie urging them to stay in

With the city currently launching a weekend blitz aimed at enforcing emergency orders and limiting gatherings in public places, the Mayor herself is also reaching out to residents in that same effort.

Bonnie Crombie announced today that residents would receive a phone call from her this morning asking them to stay home, out of parks, and continue practicing social distancing by staying two metres (six feet) apart from each other.

“The weather is nice, but thousands of lives are at stake,” said Mayor Crombie. “Please listen.”

Officers will be issuing fines of at least $750 where applicable and barricading the entrances to park parking lots where possible. Vehicles in parked in lots will be ticketed and towed.

The city is also reminding residents that they cannot use city-owned playgrounds, outdoor fitness equipment, sport courts, leash-free zones, picnic shelters, and skateboard parks.

City parks and trails remain open at this time.
