(March 17, 2020) To proactively minimize the risk to residents and staff and to help prevent the potential spread of the COVID-19 virus, the Town of Caledon is taking the additional step of closing all remaining offices and buildings to the public, including Town Hall, effective 4:30pm today.
“Our goal is to flatten the curve,” said Mayor Allan Thompson. “Now is the time to act to contain the COVID-19 pandemic and protect the integrity of our health care system. Following the province’s declaration of a state of emergency, we are acting out of an abundance of caution. And even though Town Hall will be closed to the public we will do our utmost to continue providing services to the public – by phone, by email, through online services – whatever it takes.”
The Town of Caledon will continue to provide fire and emergency services, road operations, priority by-law enforcement, animal control and other services that ensure the safety and security of its residents across the Town.
As well, a number of Town services are available online, including:
