Published January 25, 2022 at 12:18 pm

The Town of Oakville has revealed how it will gradually ease restrictions on services at the end of this month as part of Ontario’s re-opening plan.

Here’s what is opening as of January 31

  • All recreation and culture facilities including fitness centres, pools and arenas will reopen for drop-in activities on January 31, with capacity limits.
  • Memberships (fitness, recreation, culture and seniors) will be reactivated as of January 27 (to allow residents to pre-book for registered and drop-in programs).
  • Sessional programs and workshops scheduled to begin after January 31 will resume as scheduled. (All registered programs scheduled to begin between January 8 and 26 have been cancelled).
  • Seniors Centres for limited in-person activities.
  • The Oakville Centre for the Performing Arts continues to offer unique live stream performances. Some in-person performances scheduled for February have been postponed.
  • Oakville Museum reopens on February 1 for select pre-booked activities.
  • Rental permits beginning after January 31 will resume with capacity restrictions.

Remaining closed are all service counters at Town Hall as well as indoor meeting and event spaces, with the exception of appointments for marriage licences and Proof of Life forms.

“As we resume participating in more activities, please continue to do so safely by following all public health measures and regulations in place,” said Mayor Rob Burton. “I encourage every resident to get vaccinated as well to provide an extra layer of protection and reduce the strain on our local health care system and our dedicated frontline staff.”

The Town will follow this plan for 21 days until more restrictions are expected to be lifted on February 21.

In the meantime, the enhanced vaccine certificate with a QR code is the only form of proof of full COVID-19 vaccination (or medical exemption) accepted to enter any of our facilities.
