COVID-19 Update: July 15, 2020. A message from the Mayor

July 15, 2020

Please see below for the latest COVID-19 update and message from Mayor Letham: 

"Good afternoon,

Today is Wednesday July 15. As of the past Monday the Health Unit has put a mandatory measure in place that requires all residents to wear a mask when entering any public indoor space, such as a business store front or a restaurant. This is to protect yourself and those around you. If you’re a business owner, please remind those entering your location to wear a mask, although you are not obligated to enforce it. You do not need to wear a mask outdoors, just maintain your physical distance and use common sense. We’ve made great progress to date by following safety policies, so let’s not stop now.

As a result of this progress, we are now allowed to enter into Stage three as of this Friday, July 17. What this means is that nearly all businesses and public spaces are allowed to re-open, as long as they follow the public health advice and workplace safety guidance necessary to keep everyone safe.

As of Friday all playgrounds across Kawartha will be open to the public. As of Monday July 20, the pools located at the Lindsay Recreation Complex will be open to the public, as well as six more library branches for curbside services. As of July 24, our playing fields and ball diamonds will be re-opened, subject to availability. As of August 4, we will reopen community halls at the arena facilities in Fenelon Falls, Emily/Omemee, Little Britain and Lindsay. As well in August, we are targeting the 17 to re-open one of the ice pads in Lindsay.

We will keep you updated on other services and amenities as things move forward. We will not re-open services until it is safe to do so.

Thank you."
