Over the past week, no charges have been laid in Brampton for violating COVID-19-related restrictions.
According to Mayor Patrick Brown, no bylaw charges with issued over the last seven days. “I want to thank our community for abiding by the public health regulations,” he said in a press conference on Friday (October 15).
The news came after some were concerned about a potential spike in cases due to gatherings over the Thanksgiving long weekend.
However, that was not the case. “It looks like there was a very broad adherence to the public health and provincial protocols over the holiday weekend,” Brown said.
Currently, many businesses in Ontario have been permitted to return to full capacity, provided they adhere to existing restrictions (including providing proof of vaccination in some cases).
While restaurants still have capacity limits, Brown is confident those too will soon be lifted.
“Given the fact that restaurants are vaccinated environments, I fully support getting them back on their feet and being able to operate at 100 per cent, and I look forward to that provincial announcement when it comes,” he said.
“I have heard from our local restaurants in Brampton that they’re eager to get back to full capacity, while still adhering to all the public health protocols.”insauga's Editorial Standards and Policies
