The City of Brockville continues to closely monitor all of our continuing services to ensure both the safety of our ratepayers as well as our staff.
The Provincial and Federal governments are doing everything they can to preserve our civil liberties. However both levels of government have made it clear that if the behavior of their citizens does not match the need to flatten the curve, they will take further measures.
