City Service Updates

The Province of Ontario has removed the mandatory masking requirements for most settings with the exception of public transit, health care settings, long-term care homes and congregate care settings. 

In response, the City of Brantford has removed all mask mandates at City facilities. Face coverings are still required for Brantford Transit riders as this is a public transit setting. While masks are no longer mandated in City facilities at this time, we ask that all visitors to City buildings and public spaces remain kind, considerate and respectful of other people’s choices.

As outlined in Chief MOH Dr. Kieran Moore’s statements, the lifting of restrictions is a result of continued improvement in trends, but is not an indication that the pandemic is over. Rather, the City encourages all residents to remain vigilant and continue practising infection control measures such as passive screening, physical distancing, frequent hand washing and staying home if you are experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms.

Please visit our Parks and Facilities page to check current hours of operation and protocols in place at City of Brantford facilities, parks, arenas and community centres.
