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.

Do your part to make sure this service is continued safely and only use the transit service when absolutely required. You are asked to stay home – stay in – and be safe. All non-essential outings into our community further the risk of the spread of the virus. If you do need to go out into the community go alone or with one other person if you need assistance.  


The City would also like to remind and encourage everyone to follow the recommendations of our public health agency.

If you have symptoms of a respiratory illness of any kind (e.g. fever, coughing, shortness of breath, etc.) you are asked to stay home and seek medical treatment. Call your health care provider and tell them about your symptoms. After hours, or if you do not have a health care provider, contact Telehealth Ontario at 1-866-797-0000. Do not visit your health care provider or a walk-in clinic without calling ahead to outline your symptoms and travel experience.
