Visitors should not go to Professor’s Lake, Eldorado outdoor swimming pool or wading pools (or anywhere unnecessary) if they are feeling at all unwell.

Finally, residents are reminded that under a new temporary by-law which came into effect on July 10, non-medical masks or face coverings are required in all Brampton indoor public spaces to help stop the spread of COVID-19.
