COVID-19 Update from Council – Updated March31, 2020

The well-being and safety of our residents, business operators, visitors and staff is our top priority.  Council will continue to closely monitor the new developments and public health notices regarding COVID-19. In light of the reporting of the cases of Coronavirus in the province, and in response to the advice of Nova Scotia’s Chief Health Officer, the following steps are being taken to help reduce the spread of COVID-19 in our community:

  • NEW: Effective March 31, 2020 all Municipal parks and trails in the Town of Annapolis Royal are CLOSED until further notice due to health risks related to the COVID-19 Pandemic. As this is a rapidly changing situation Council would like to move forward with abundance of caution for its citizens and has made the hard decision to closed the parks and trails. The decision is in response to an escalation in use of town parks and trails by non-residents; contrary to the provincial directive for people to walk in their own neighbourhoods, and not drive to public spaces in other communities.
  • All recreational activities and facilities will be closed until further notice, with ongoing monitoring
  • All sub-committees will be postponed until further notice, with Committee of the Whole and Council meetings continuing at this time at adjusted times and held virtually.
  • All Municipal facilities including public washrooms will remain closed until further notice.
  • We are encouraging on-line payments through the bank or on-line.

Any questions please contact any member of Council by email or Mayor MacDonald at 902-955-1605 or CAO Millett-Campbell at 902-526-3395. For more information please review the Government of Nova Scotia COVID-19 website, https://novascotia.ca/coronavirus/
