The Civic Holiday in Hamilton falls on Monday, August 3, 2020.

This year, some things that are typically open will be closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic and there will be no major public events due to physical distancing restrictions and bans on large gatherings.

However, physical distancing measures are still in place. People are required to stay at least six-feet metres apart from those outside of their social circles.
