In accordance with the Covid-19 restriction changes announced yesterday by the Province, the Restriction Exemption Program (REP) is no longer in place as of February 9, 2022. The public health measures being taken by the Town align with the new Provincial guidelines, and the REP is no longer in effect to access the Dr. Duncan Murray Recreation Center and Council Chambers and the Committee Room. Access to all other Town facilities remains unchanged, as the REP was not required in those buildings.
Masking does remain mandatory in all Town Facilities.
