Not gathering in groups of larger than 5 (except at essential service locations)

Daily patrols of the entire Town will be performed by James Special Services Inc.  They will exercise zero tolerance for those breaking Provincial orders.  Fines range from $750 to $1,000.

We have declared a state of emergency in South Bruce Peninsula under the Emergency Management and Civil Protection Act.  This follows a declared emergency in the Province of Ontario and in Bruce County.  We are all working together for the health and safety of our residents.

The pandemic situation changes daily.  You can do your part by staying home whenever possible, practicing social distancing (stay 6.5 feet away from others) and washing your hands and sanitizing surfaces frequently. 

To those who have been outside of Canada, you must isolate for 14 days-the Federal Government has ordered that you must go directly home and you may not take public transit. 

The Grey Bruce Medical Officer of Health has ordered international travelers to self-isolate and strongly recommends against non-essential travel to and from Grey and Bruce Counties. 

what does self isolation mean?

Self-isolation means that you should not leave your home or have others visit you.  You should seek services over the phone or internet or ask for help from friends, family or neighbours for essential errands.-Quote from Press Release from Public Health-March 26, 2020
