The Terrace Bay Community Centre & Municipal Office will remain OPEN from Monday to Friday – 10:00am to 9:30pm and Saturday – 10:00am to 4:00pm for front counter service only.
All current COVID-19 restrictions and protocols remain in place and will be strictly enforced. A mask must be worn at all times while inside the Community Centre. All patrons will be asked to self screen before entering. Anyone showing signs or symptoms associated with COVID-19 are asked to not enter the building.
REVISED – As of September 22, 2021, Ontarians will need to be fully vaccinated (two doses plus 14 days) and provide their proof of vaccination along with photo ID to access certain public settings and facilities. This approach focuses on higher-risk indoor public settings where face coverings cannot always be worn.
The Following Township Facilities will be affected:
- Fitness Room
- Bowling Alley
- Squash & Racquetball Courts
- Curling Club
- Michael King Hall
- Senior Centre
- All Meeting Rooms
Individuals who cannot receive the vaccine due to medical exemptions will be permitted entry with a doctor’s note until recognized medical exemptions can be integrated as part of a digital vaccine certificate. Children who are 11 years of age and younger and unable to be vaccinated will also be exempted from these requirements.
All individuals entering the facility for the above purposes will be required to check in at the Terrace Bay Community Centre Office and show proof of vaccine with a photo ID.
This only applies to individuals entering for recreational and meeting purposes. All individuals conducting business or accessing services at the Municipal Office will continue to be permitted to do so.
The Corporation of the Township of Terrace Bay has been actively updating its Influenza planning and monitoring the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) situation as it evolves around the world and in Canada.
Mayor Jody Davis and Township Administration are in regular contact with health officials, to monitor the situation and the response from the Public Health Agency of Canada and the Ontario Ministry of Health.
“In unprecedented times like today, it is critical that citizens take our Health Care Professional’s recommendations seriously. For those who have recently returned from out of country, please respect the required mandate to self-quarantine for 14 days. There are services available to assist you during your transition back home.
I would like to remind the public that this is a time for calm and thoughtfulness. It is important for us to remain properly informed with up-to-date reliable sources and to exercise best hygiene practices and coughing and sneezing etiquette. As a community, we must band together for the protection of our health and well-being. Please be considerate and kind to your neighbours.” – Mayor Jody Davis

- Provincial Ministry of Health – The Ontario Ministry of Health reports on the status of cases in Ontario each morning at 10:30 am
- Thunder Bay District Health Unit – The Health Unit’s website contains links to credible sources of information for both the public and local health care providers
