“I know that the extension of the Stay-at-Home Order, as well as newly announced restrictions, will be tough on so many people in our community. But what’s clear is that more is needed to be done to stop the rampant spread of this virus across Mississauga and all of Ontario,” said Mayor Bonnie Crombie. “I ask that you please continue to follow the advice of our health experts. My hope is that the extended Stay-at-Home Order will help us keep these variants at bay while we continue to vaccinate more and more residents in our community.”

The Stay-at-Home Order requires everyone to remain at home except for essential reasons, such as grocery shopping, going to the pharmacy, accessing health care services (including getting vaccinated), outdoor exercise or for work that cannot be done remotely.

Effective Saturday, April 17, 2021, at 12:01 a.m., further restrictions include, but are not limited to:

  • Closing all outdoor recreational amenities: golf courses, basketball courts, soccer fields, and playgrounds with limited exceptions.
  • Prohibiting all outdoor social gatherings and organized public events, except for with members of the same household or one other person from outside that household who lives alone or a caregiver for any member of the household.
  • Closing all non-essential workplaces in the construction sector.
  • Reducing capacity limits to 25 per cent in all retail settings where in-store shopping is permitted. This includes supermarkets, grocery stores, convenience stores, indoor farmers’ markets, other stores that primarily sell food and pharmacies.

Controlled Burn Planned at Jack Darling Memorial Park to Preserve Ecosystem

The City of Mississauga is planning a controlled burn at Jack Darling Memorial Park sometime this weekend (April 17 or 18, depending on weather conditions). The controlled burn will help maintain the park’s tallgrass prairies – an ecosystem that is home to rare grasses and wildflowers, and also attracts many rare species of birds and insects. Periodic burns are needed every three to four years to help regenerate tallgrass prairies and remove invasive woody plants. Prairie grasses are dormant at this time of the year, so there is no threat to prairie plants and wildlife.

For safety reasons, the park (including the leash-free area) will be closed to the public before and during the scheduled burn, and will reopen following the burn clean-up. Closure signage will be posted 24 hours in advance and neighbourhood residents have been notified by mail. Residents living in the area may also see drifting smoke from the site for 30 to 60 minutes between 11 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. on the day of the burn, and are recommended to keep their windows closed.

WATERSHED CONDITIONS

Water Safety Statement

Credit Valley Conservation (CVC) is advising that a spring storm system is forecast to move into our watershed late this evening and overnight bringing risk of thunderstorms and 15 to 20 mm of heavy rain. Periods of rain will be ending near Friday at noon bringing an additional 10 to 15 mm of rainfall. 5 to 10 mm of rain is forecasted for Saturday.

While flooding of the Credit River and its major tributaries is not expected, higher water levels and flows will result in local streams and rivers becoming dangerous, especially in the vicinity of culverts, bridges and dams. The public is advised to stay away from all watercourses, especially children and pets. Residents living near watercourses are advised to remove or secure all loose items in the floodplain. 

CVC will continue to closely monitor weather and water levels in the watershed. The Watershed Conditions Statement for Water Safety will be in effect through Sun-Mar-28-2021 or until further notice.
