Open House Ban-Halton, York and Hamilton Join Toronto and Peel

Halton, York and Hamilton have moved into the more restrictive “Red-Control” zone on the province’s tiered framework for COVID-19 restrictions, joining Toronto and Peel Region. This means in-person open houses are banned in these areas but in-person showings by appointment following public health directives are allowed. For details, refer to the complete provincial news release

Based on these new provincial colour coded thresholds, provincial public health units and GTA regions are now classified as follows:

  • Red-Control:
    • Hamilton Public Health Services
    • Halton Region Public Health
    • Toronto Public Health
    • York Region Public Health
    • Peel Region Public Health
  • Orange-Restrict:
    • Brant County Health Unit
    • Durham Region Health Department
    • Eastern Ontario Health Unit
    • Niagara Region Public Health
    • Wellington-Dufferin-Guelph Public Health
    • Region of Waterloo Public Health
  • Yellow-Protect:
    • Huron Perth Public Health
    • Middlesex-London Health Unit
    • Public Health Sudbury & Districts
    • Southwestern Public Health
    • Windsor-Essex County Health Unit

Assignments to the current levels would last for a minimum of 28 days or two-incubation periods (into December 2020), at which time the status of these public health unit regions will be reassessed on a weekly basis. However, the movement to a more restrictive zone will be considered sooner if there are rapidly worsening trends.
