What the Township is doing in response to COVID-19

The Township of North Kawartha is taking actions to help protect the health of our Community during the COVID-19 pandemic. North Kawartha fully supports and is in compliance with Federal and Provincial Governments orders and directives, and the Public Health authorities’ recommendations. Updates will be provided as new information is available. The Municipal Office is open to the public, and staff at all departments are accessible by calling 705-656-4445 or using our contact directory for direct lines and email addresses.

Face coverings/masks must be worn (in accordance with Peterborough Public Health directives) when entering opened Municipal Buildings, and use the hand-sanitizer provided at the entrances. Physical distancing of 2 metres (6 feet) must be maintained between anyone who is not from the same household, or you must wear a mask (even if outdoors). Please review the screening poster upon entering, and do not attend any opened Municipal Buildings if you are sick or have any symptoms.

As Ontario will be in Step Three of the Roadmap to Re-open indefinitely we have cautiously re-opened as many of our outdoor facilities as may be allowed, while being in compliance with all regulations and restrictions required under the Three-Step Provincial re-opening plan and provincial government Step Three Regulation O. Reg 364/20.

Re-opened outdoor recreation amenities include the tennis & pickleball courts and sports field at Wilson Park, the playgrounds at the Wilson Park and Glen Alda Community Centres, the boat launches, and the public beaches at Chandos and Quarry Bay. All of these amenities re-opened at various times with restrictions.

As a cautious first step toward re-opening our indoor facilities, the NKCC Fitness Centre re-opened on Monday, July 19th with restrictions based on Provincial Government orders, and Peterborough Public Health recommendations. The Township will gradually re-open the North KawarthaWilson Park, and Glen Alda Community Centres in the weeks after Labour Day, which means the return of some indoor programs and/or services including the NKCC Ice Surface, Minor hockey, Adult hockey, Figure Skating lessons, and some Public Skating. There are specific restrictions for every facility and event, so please check before attending.

As Garbage and Recycling Collection is deemed an essential service, the Anstruther and Haultain Transfer Stations' schedules are not affected by the new regulations, and will maintain regular hours. When exiting your vehicle at our Transfer Stations you are requested to wear a face covering and maintain physical distancing of 2 metres (six feet), to help protect the health of our Transfer Station attendants, as well as others. Curbside Collection will continue as per its normal schedule. To support physical distancing, residents are encouraged to use Curbside Collection.

Thank you for your co-operation and understanding.
