The Town of Niagara-on-the-Lake is closing all administration buildings and cancelling all public and committee meetings due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Keeping in line with measures being taken by the Province, effective immediately, all town administration buildings are closed to the public,” said a town release Monday afternoon.

“As a result, all public and committee meetings, including committee of the whole, have been cancelled. The town council meeting scheduled for March 30, 2020, remains scheduled but is subject to further notice. Postponement notices will be circulated once new dates have been confirmed.”

The announcement follows the closure of town facilities on Friday, including the Meridian Credit Union and Centennial arenas in Virgil, Niagara-on-the-Lake and Queenston libraries and the community centre.

“These decisions are necessary based on the demographic of our population and the risk of a human health emergency as a result COVID-19. This closure will assist in protecting the health and well-being of our residents and staff,” said the town.

Town staff will remain available to assist and serve citizens online and over the phone between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Monday to Friday (905-468-3266).
