Public Notice: COVID-19 Pandemic
March 15th, 2020
Due to the on-going COVID-19 circumstances, the Township of Terrace Bay’s Municipal Emergency Control Group (MECG) met March 15th at 1pm to discuss its Emergency Plan procedures for Public Health Emergencies. Terrace Bay’s MECG group consists of the Mayor, Chief Administrative Officer/Clerk, Fire Chief, and Public Works Supervisor.
Our local North of Superior Healthcare Group (NOSH Group) has convened an Incident Management Committee (ICM) with representatives from the Hospitals in Terrace Bay and Marathon, the clinics in Schreiber, Terrace Bay and Marathon, and the Thunder Bay District Health Unit with the purpose of information sharing and proactive planning for the processes, people and supplies necessary should the virus reach our communities.
The Township of Terrace Bay strives to maintain a culture of safety and well-being in our community and are working closely with our public health partners to ensure the safety of all. Our Mayor and Management Staff will be participating in the Incident Management Committee’s first meeting this upcoming week. Read More
