Halton Region moved to Stage 3 on July 24, 2020. This stage allows for outdoor playgrounds, play structures and equipment to reopen, along with the following outdoor recreational amenities permitted to reopen in Stage 2:
- indoor and outdoor public swimming pools, outdoor splash pads and wading pools (check with your local municipality for reopening dates)
- outdoor sports facilities and multi-use fields
- off-leash dog areas
- outdoor picnic sites, benches and shelters in parks and recreational areas
- public and private campgrounds for recreational vehicle, car camping and all other types of camping
- adventure activities such as paintball, mini-golf, archery ranges, and Go-cart tracks
Effective July 24, 2020, sports and recreational facilities can open and team competitions (scrimmages and games) can resume. Sports in which body contact between players is integral or frequent (for example, wrestling or judo) are not permitted unless the approach can be modified to prevent prolonged or deliberate physical contact.
Most provincial parks and conservation areas are now open.
Residents must continue to practice physical distancing if visiting outdoor recreational spaces unless they are members of the same household or social circle.
