At the upcoming Committee of the Whole meeting on Tuesday, August 10th, Town administration will outline a ‘footprint to re-opening’ for all remaining municipal facilities and services, in accordance with Provincial and local health guidelines.
“While the Town has maintained a high level of service throughout the pandemic, we believe that with increased health and safety measures and precautions in place at Town facilities, in accordance with the Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit (SMDHU), we are in a comfortable position to gradually return to in-person operations this fall,” said Glen Davies, Chief Administrative Officer. “All in-person services will initially begin through an appointment basis, while ongoing business will continue to be conducted regularly through phone and email,” he added.
The following timeline provides a schedule of re-opening dates. These dates may be modified at any time due to changes with the pandemic and SMDHU guidelines:
|September 7, 2021 (post-Labour Day)||All staff return to working in the office on full-time basis|
|September 13, 2021||Town Hall services open to the public, via appointment|
|October 12, 2021 (post-Thanksgiving)||Town Hall services open to the public, walk-in|
|Other Municipal Facilities|
|Gravenhurst Library||Currently open to modified hours at limited capacity|
|YMCA – Gravenhurst||Open as of August 3, 2021, with applicable restrictions|
|Graeme Murray Arena/Centennial Centre Office||Open with ice by end of August|
|Gravenhurst Opera House||TBD|
