The provincially mandated two-week pandemic lockdown means going back to a different way of doing business for the City of Timmins.

Director of Corporate Services Rock Foy tells us what that means.

“We’re looking at closures of arenas, the museum, the Sportsplex pool, City Hall for face-to-face services, all of the community centres that operate in our buildings,” Foy lists off.

Certain things we often take for granted will be there for us.

“All of our public works and public utilities, snow removal, snow plowing, snow removal, waste management including access to Deloro landfill, Timmins Police, Timmins Fire, Timmins Transit will all continue to operate during the lockdown period.”

The public libraries will continue to operate with curbside, contactless and on-line services.

And all outdoor recreation facilities will stay open.  The most important thing to remember is keeping six feet of space between you and anyone else out there.
