The Town of Orangeville continues to respond to COVID-19. Residents are reminded of the importance of reducing all contact with others as much as possible and staying home except for essential outings to help stop the community spread of the deadly virus.



On April 20, Orangeville Council approved a COVID-19 Emergency Measures By-law to help protect the health and safety of residents. Individuals not adhering to physical distancing regulation can be fined a minimum of $500 and maximum of up to $100,000 for each offence.



Municipal regulations under the by-law include:







  1. Prohibits a person from being within 2 metres of another person in a public place, except if individuals reside at the same premise.
  2. Prohibits a person from being seated or standing within 2 metres of another person inside or outside a business, except if the individuals reside at the same premise or are employees of the said business.
  3. Prohibits the use of outdoor recreational amenities.


Complaints about non-compliance with respect to the provincial Emergency Management and Civil Protection Act or the Orangeville Emergency Measures By-law should be directed to the Orangeville Police Service at 519-941-2522. Please contact the Orangeville Police Service directly, not via social media. Do not call 911. To report a COVID-19 violation in Dufferin, beyond Orangeville’s borders, contact Dufferin OPP at 1-888-310-1122. On April 20, the Town of Orangeville appointed additional staff members as by-law enforcement officers to assist with the enforcement of the COVID-109 Emergency Measures By-law.
