By-law to enforce physical distancing
Following numerous reports of social gatherings on public property and individuals not maintaining the safe physical distance of at least two metres apart from others, Mayor Burton signed By-law 2020-019, the Emergency Physical Distancing By-law.
It supports the Provincial Orders made under the Emergency Management Act in order to protect Oakville residents byregulating physical distancing during the COVID-19 emergency.Individuals not adhering to the physical distancing regulation can be fined a minimum of $750 and maximum of up to$100,000 for each offence, or issued an administrative monetary penalty in the amount of $300.Today’s stark provincial forecast of the COVID-19 epidemic further underscores the need for additional Public Health measures, including an enhanced focus on enforcement and fines for non-compliance of physical distancing.
For the duration of the pandemic, if a member of the public wishes to report an incident of non-compliance with the emergency orders,they may contact the Halton Regional Police Service COVID-19 Hotline: 905-825-4722
