Brockville, ON – March 17, 2022
Aligned with the Province of Ontario’s lifting of most COVID-19 public health restrictions, the City of Brockville will remove the mandatory masking at all indoor municipal facilities on March 21, 2022. Visitors to public spaces within City facilities will not be required to wear a mask but may do so. This includes the City Hall, Brockville Arts Centre, Brockville Museum, Memorial Centre, and Gord Watts Municipal Centre.
Passengers aboard Brockville Transit and visitors to St. Lawrence Lodge long-term care home are still required to wear masks in accordance with Provincial direction.
While COVID-19 operational health measures/restrictions are lifted in City facilities, users are kindly asked to continue to follow precautionary protocols such as:
- staying home when sick
- self-monitoring for symptoms and masking if you have been exposed to a close contact
- use hand sanitizer provided at facility entrances
- sneezing/coughing into your sleeve
- avoiding touching your eyes, nose and mouth
- frequent handwashing/disinfection and
- staying away from those that are sick
While masking will no longer be a requirement within the facilities, patrons who wish to wear a mask while in the facilities are encouraged to do so. We ask everyone to be respectful, kind and courteous to those who have chosen to wear a mask.
If you experience symptoms or live with a person experiencing COVID symptoms and are unsure what to do, please visit the Ontario Ministry of Health website at COVID-19 Integrated Testing & Case, Contact and Outbreak Management Interim Guidance: Omicron Surge (gov.on.ca) for isolation guidance or contact Leeds, Grenville and Lanark Health Unit: https://healthunit.org/
