On April 6, 2020, Mayor Brian Bigger declared a State of Emergency for the City of Greater Sudbury.
The declaration of a municipal emergency is part of Greater Sudbury’s ongoing efforts to stop the spread of COVID-19. It ensures the city can use every power possible to protect the health and safety of residents.
The municipal State of Emergency will remain in effect for the duration of the Province of Ontario’s declaration under the Emergency Management and Civil Protection Act.
All communities and individuals must follow federal (Government of Canada), provincial (Government of Ontario), and municipal orders for gatherings, closures, face coverings, and travel. The Reopening Ontario (A Flexible Response to COVID-19) Act, 2020, which came into effect July 24, ensures measures made under the Emergency Management and Civil Protection Act remain in place to address the threat of COVID-19.
Provincial governments, municipal governments, police services, and Public Health Sudbury & Districts all have a role to play in enforcing orders and closures.
The City of Greater Sudbury continues to work with Public Health Sudbury & Districts and a network of dedicated community and business partners to protect the local health care system, economy and critical infrastructure.
In accordance with instructions by Public Health Sudbury & Districts, residents will be required to wear a face covering or non-medical mask when visiting any indoor City facility or when using GOVA Transit, effective Wednesday, July 8, 2020. The City has a limited number of disposable masks available for visitors who forget to bring their own.
