Updated March 25, 2022

Masks are no longer required at most town facilities

Halton Region has lifted Regional Mask By-law. Effective March 21, mask wearing is no longer required to enter any town facility, with the exception of public areas within the transit facility and on town buses. While masking will no longer be mandatory, it is important to remember that people will have different comfort levels with the lifting of various COVID-19 restrictions. The town supports residents and their choice to continue the personal protective practices that make them feel comfortable and encourages residents to continue following public health guidance:

Please note that provincial and regional regulations require masks to be worn on Oakville Transit buses and within public areas of the transit facility until April 27, 2022.

Masks are also required in the following circumstances:

  • Individuals who test positive for COVID-19 are required to wear a mask until day 10 following a positive test result or the onset of symptoms (whichever occurred first).
  • Close contacts and household contacts of individuals with COVID-19 are required to wear a mask for 10 days after exposure.
  • Individuals who have recently traveled outside of Canada, have to wear a mask for 14 days upon return.
