Guidelines for our Seasonal ResidentsOn March 26, 2020 Mayor Ric Bresee declared a COVID-19 State of Emergency for Loyalist Township. Under the Public Health Canada emergency order, if you are under mandatory isolation/quarantine, then you must stay in your permanent residence and these guidelines do not apply unless this is your primary place of residence. The Province and the Public Health Units ask that everyone stay home and not travel to seasonal residences.
If you choose not to adhere to the Provincial directive, Loyalist Township is providing these guidelines as a precaution to limit the spread of COVID-19. We value both our seasonal and permanent residents We want to help protect the health and safety of everyone and not overload our health centers.
