COVID - 19 Update No. 60 - August 14, 2020 6:00 p.m.

​​UPDATE 60 - August 14, 6 pm

King has been monitoring and evaluating safe, contained and fiscally responsible measures in determining the re-opening plans of some indoor facilities, through to the end of 2020.

Based on continued efforts to contain transmission risks and adhere to public health guidelines, as well as uncertainties with the anticipated risk of a second wave this fall, for the safety of the public and staff, King is focusing on gradually reopening a limited number of indoor facilities this fall.

At this time, King Township is focusing its efforts on further expanding service levels through a limited reopening some of its indoor recreational amenities this fall, in a phased, cautious approach.

Although the Municipal Centre will continue to be closed to the public to the end of 2020, staff will be introducing future “in-person, by appointment only” services (i.e. commissioning, marriage licensing services, garbage bag tag and bin purchases). Details of these services will be announced in early September.

Indoor recreational facilities will be evaluated for potential phased re-opening later this year, subject to continued containment of COVID-19 and only those that can practically provide for future indoor recreational programs in a safe and realistic service model. Subject to this evaluation, the Township’s intent is to pilot the reopening of one facility in October (subject to user demands, viability of programs).
