City Facilities Slowly Reopening

By John Swartz

The City of Orillia’s facilities are phasing reopening after the Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit territory moved into red status of restrictions.

The Orillia Farmers’ Market had its first market day of the year last Saturday and will be open from 8 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Saturdays. You can always shop online anytime for pickup on Saturdays.

Rotary Place reopens Wednesday for user groups. The Orillia Recreation Center reopens for user groups Friday and for drop-in programs March 1 (online registration begins Wednesday).

The Orillia Public Library will remain with curbside pickup for the time being. You can find information and order materials online.

City Hall is only open for business by appointment. You can book online.

Parking at meters on the street is still free for a 30 minute period and free for 3 hours in parking lots (Lot 10, Coldwater Street opposite Central School, is 5 hours).

Being in the red zone changes organized public event and social gathering limits to 5 people indoors and 25 people outdoors.

For other information about how the City is handling this change visit online.  Provincial rules and regulations can be found here.
