TOWNSHIP of ZORRA - The Township of Zorra has issued the following statement regarding the COVID-19 pandemic:
The Township of Zorra is continuing to take action in response to the spread of COVID-19 (novel coronavirus) in Canada.
Beginning Monday, March 16, 2020, entry to the Municipal Office will be by appointment only. All recreation facilities are closed to the public until further notice.
Anyone who wishes to conduct in-person business is advised to phone 519-485-2490 and discuss their needs with a customer service representative. Callers will be directed to online services if available, or offered other options as appropriate.
If staff deem that an in-person visit to a Township Office is required, callers will be asked questions regarding their travel and health history prior to booking an appointment. Visitors with confirmed appointments should be prepared to show identification upon arrival.
The Township is also implementing enhanced cleaning and hygiene measures at all Township facilities. In addition, staff who have travelled internationally recently will be requested to self quarantine. The Township recognizes that these changing service levels may present a challenge to some citizens, however we would not take this action if we did not believe it was in the best interest
of the community.
