GTHA Mayors and Chairs support province’s work with public health officials to open doors safely

“Today, Mayors and Chairs from the 11 largest municipal governments across the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area held their weekly call on the ongoing response to COVID-19.

The Mayors and Chairs are continuing to work with the provincial government to address increasing COVID-19 case counts.

We support the province’s ongoing work, led by public health officials, to develop a framework which can take us forward and find ways to open doors safely.

All the Mayors and Chairs agreed that we want businesses currently closed due to the modified Stage 2 measures, to be able to reopen safely and to remain open.

We support the province’s work to establish a safe path forward for restaurants and other establishments from our public health professionals assuming circumstances permit.”
