HRPS and Halton Hills By-Law to Enforce Emergency Orders

A ministerial designation under the Provincial Offences Act will temporarily allow by-law enforcement officers to assist police officers with enforcing the emergency orders being made by the province. This latest emergency order is one of many that have followed the Government of Ontario's Declaration of Emergency on March 17, 2020, granted under the Emergency Management and Civil Protection Act (EMCPA). As such, Halton Regional Police Service (HRPS), Halton Hills by-law enforcement officers and Conservation Halton officers are now working together to respond to service calls related to non-compliance with emergency orders within Halton Hills. Effective April 2, municipal by-law enforcement officers have the ability to enforce COVID-19 Provincial Orders.

Keeping Safe

Halton Region Public Health is focusing on those most at risk of COVID-19. The current priority is to hear from high-risk groups only:

- Health care providers seeking or reporting information;
- Those living or working in a healthcare setting or institution and experiencing symptoms of COVID-19; or
- Those who have been in close contact with a confirmed case of COVID-19.

Not everyone requires testing. Most people with mild symptoms will recover on their own at home. Get rest, drink fluids, eat well and stay home. You do not need to contact Public Health. If you are high risk please call 311, 905-825-6000 or toll free at 1-866-442-5866 to start the assessment process. Residents must have an appointment to attend an Assessment Centre. If you have SEVERE symptoms, please call 9-1-1 immediately.
