Loyalist Township Recreation Facility Closures Effective March 13th at 11:59 PM

As the Coronavirus/COVID-19 situation evolves, protecting the health and safety of our residents is our top priority.  Our Senior Leadership team have been meeting to make decisions on factors that impact operations and resident services. It is important to know that Loyalist Township has emergency plans and processes in place to monitor and address emerging issues like this one.
As a precautionary measure, Loyalist Township will be canceling all programming, rentals, and events and will close the WJ Henderson Recreation Centre, Leisure & Activity Centre and the Amherstview Community Hall to the public.  This will take effect following the last rental booking on March 13, 2020 and at this time will continue until April 6, 2020. We will be in continued contact with public health officials to evaluate our facilities beyond April 6, 2020.
“We did not take this decision lightly. We know that our community and recreation centres serve as vital hubs for our residents. However, we also recognize that a high-volume of people pass through our facilities each day, engaging in activities and programs that make social distancing difficult. Although a difficult decision, this precautionary action is in the best interest of protecting the safety of our residents and patrons” said Loyalist Township Mayor, Ric Bresee.
Clients with membership will have an extension added to their membership once our facilities reopen. FIT Passes, program registrants and clients with facility bookings will receive a credit placed on their account. Until a reopening date has been determined, we will not be accepting future bookings of our facilities. We ask clients to remain patient while this administration of these credits takes place.
If you have questions or require further information, residents and patrons are advised to
Other Community-Based Measures
  • Fire stations will be closed to the public as of this March 16, 2020
  • We are reviewing plans for the Council meeting scheduled for March 23
  • Enhanced cleaning measures are taking place within municipal offices
  • Reinforce messages from KFL&A Public Health
As advised by our local Health Unit - and out of an abundance of caution - we are proactively making arrangements for the protection of our staff. These include an allowance for many of our internal office staff to work from home, while maintaining telephone and communication services for our residents. We acknowledge that this may create delays in some applications and approvals processes. We appreciate the patience and understanding of all as we work to protect our residents and staff.
It is also important to note that our Emergency Services, Utilities, Roads and Ferry staff remain on the job and continue to ensure that these services continue uninterrupted.
 
 
This is an ongoing and evolving situation. Loyalist Township is committed to ensuring residents remain informed. Visit loyalist.ca/go/covid19 for ongoing updates.
