Control phase for Provincial Framework

November 16, 2020 at 12:01 am - The Provincial government implemented the COVID-19 Response Framework: Keeping Ontario Safe and Open. Within this framework, the City of Hamilton has been assigned to the “control” - red category.

The objectives of the “control” category in the framework are broader-scale measures and restrictions, across multiple sectors, to control transmission. Restrictions are the most severe available before widescale business or organizational closure. Locally, the Reopening Ontario Act will continue to be assertively enforced by the City’s Municipal Law Enforcement, COVID Enforcement Team. As the City enters the “control” red category, the COVID Enforcement team will be responding to complaints as well as proactively enforcing throughout the City.
