However, not all facilities will be exactly as they were prior to COVID-19. There will be new measures in place to promote social distancing.

Only one visitor at a time will be allowed at the public counter in the municipal office so that social distancing may be practiced.

Park washrooms will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Despite efforts to clean, the village is not promising that every office, park and public surface is sanitized.

The village strongly recommends that those using public amenities use sanitizing wipes and hand sanitizer, a news release stated.

Beginning June 15, council will once again begin to meet in person at Council Chambers after multiple meetings were held virtually due to COVID-19.
