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.
