Milton Council endorsed the Town’s COVID-19 recovery program framework. The approval came at Council’s meeting July 9, 2020.

The strategy outlined the Town’s phased approach to re-opening facilities and resuming services that were impacted by the pandemic. The framework considers the safety of staff and the public, business continuity, and resuming services.

It specifically addressed steps necessary for the recovery of town facilities including Town Hall, Civics Operations Centre, as well as all recreation facilities. “I know this plan will help ensure that we reopen facilities and services carefully and efficiently,” Mayor Gord Krantz said.

The expected outcomes include the following:

  • Provides a process to ensure activities and services are coordinated in a consistent approach across the organization
  • Reduces exposure to our community and employees of COVID-19
  • Balances services with financial considerations
  • Enables business continuity to the greatest extent possible
  • Supports implementation of a scalable recovery plan that contemplates services and work programs being increased or decreased to adapt to the changing environment   

The Region of Halton reports an increase of four confirmed cases over yesterday. Milton stands at 241 overall cases. 221 are confirmed while 20 are considered currently active. 217 are classified as resolved or recovered.
