BRAMPTON, ON (March 18, 2022) – The City of Brampton continues to reopen with a focus on health and safety, with staff gradually and safely returning to office and City work locations.
Mandatory Mask By-law
The City has amended its Brampton COVID-19 Mandatory Mask By-law to expire on Monday, March 21, 2022. This is in line with the Province of Ontario lifting provincial masking requirements in most settings on the same date.
Masks will continue to be required in select settings such as public transit and indoor terminals, health care settings, long-term care homes and congregate care settings. Residents are asked to respect those who choose to continue to wear masks in settings where they are no longer required.
Under the Mandatory Face Mask By-law, non-medical masks were required in all indoor public spaces to protect the health and safety of the community. It was set to expire on April 1, 2022 prior to the amendment.
Masks will continue to be required on all Brampton Transit buses and in Brampton Transit terminals in line with the Province’s regulations. Cleaning and sanitizing remains in effect, and facilities and terminals that have hard surfaces are wiped down and sanitized daily.

Starting March 21, individuals entering City recreation centres are no longer required to wear a mask. Those who wish to continue to wear a mask when using recreation facilities are welcome to do so.
Capacity limits and proof of vaccination requirements at recreation centres have been removed in alignment with recent provincial regulations being lifted. Recreation Centres are open for registered and drop-in programming.
