Municipality of South Huron to implement reopening plan


Following the Government of Ontario’s framework for reopening the province, the Municipality of South Huron is now implementing its plan to reopen some amenities to the public.

“As we reopen, we must all continue to demonstrate excellent judgement, courtesy and respect for each other by maintaining proper physical distancing and following the guidelines of Huron Perth Public Health,” said Mayor George Finch. “We are each responsible for the well-being of those around us – this is what makes us a community.”

In compliance with all provincial orders and regulations, South Huron amenities will reopen in stages. This means:

  • Users must continue to follow the guidance of Huron Perth Public Health when using these amenities.
  • Any person who enters or uses a facility must maintain a physical distance of at least two metres from any other person who is using the facility; team sports are not practiced or played within the facility
  • Other sports or games that are likely to result in individuals coming within two metres of each other are not to be practised or played within the facility
  • No public gatherings of more than five (5) people (this does not apply to those who live within the same household)
