Emergency Measures By-law Now in Effect

Orangeville | by Jill Young  

People can be fined $500 to $100,000 for not following rules related to COVID-19 and distancing.

The Town of Orangeville is reminding residents that the COVID-19 Emergency Measures By-law is now in effect.

As of April 20th, individuals that don't follow the bylaw could be fined from $500 to $100,000 per offence.

The regulations state that people can not stand closer than 2 metres of another person in a public place, unless they reside together.

They also can't stand or sit within 2 metres of another person inside or outside a business, unless they live in the same residence, and people can't use outdoor recreational amenities.

Town officials say complaints about non-compliance should be directed to the Orangeville Police Service at 519-941-2522 or Dufferin OPP (1-888-310-1122) if outside of Orangeville.

People are asked to contact the Orangeville Police Service directly, not via social media, and not through 9-1-1.
