As part of a coordinated regional response to the COVID-19 pandemic the Town of Caledon is announcing closures, cancellations and service level adjustments while at the same time focusing on continuing the provision of core services and operations to residents and businesses.
“We understand the impact these changes have on the daily lives of our residents and we don’t make these decisions lightly,” said Mayor Allan Thompson. “We are doing everything we can to continue essential services and programs but clearly this is a time when we all need to do what we can to fight this pandemic.”
The following changes take effect March 14 and are effective through April 5, 2020.
RECREATION AND COMMUNITY CENTRES
All recreation facilities and community centres will be closed. March Break camps, registered programs, and rentals will be cancelled. Refunds will be issued automatically by the Town. Memberships will be suspended and extended for the duration of the closure.
CALEDON PUBLIC LIBRARY
All branches of the library system will be closed. Residents are encouraged to delay returning borrowed materials until regular services resume. Overdue fines will not be incurred during this time. On-line materials including e-books and streaming materials can be accessed via the Caledon Public Library website.
TOWN HALL / PROVINCIAL OFFENCES COURT
Town Hall and the Provincial Offences Court are scheduled to remain open.
COUNCIL / PUBLIC MEETINGS
