Following this announcement of school closures, the Township of North Glengarry has made the decision to enforce further cancellations of public programming within the municipality. All March Break activities that were scheduled to take place during the break have been cancelled. This includes events scheduled to take place at the Tim Horton’s Dome, the Glengarry Sports Palace and the Maxville and District Sports Complex. The March Break Day-Camp has also been cancelled. We apologize for any inconvenience this might cause to our residents, but we ask that you stand in solidarity with us during this pandemic.
The township says it will be monitoring this quickly evolving situation closely and will be providing regular updates via our website and Facebook Page.
“We encourage all residents to educate themselves on the COVID-19 virus. his is best done through the Eastern Ontario Health Unit’s website and other reliable sources,” said North Glengarry CAO Sarah Huskinson.
On Thursday, March 12, the Ontario Government announced that all publicly funded elementary and secondary schools across Ontario would be closing for two weeks following March Break, due to concerns about COVID-19. This temporary closure comes into effect on March 14 through to April 5th. These closures were based on advice from Ontario’s Chief Medical Officer of Health, Doctor David Williams.
