Leamington has announced how the coronavirus will impact operations and facilities.

The Municipality’s response is based on the current assessment by the Windsor Essex County Health Unit.

Although the World Health Organization (WHO) has declared the virus a global pandemic, the WECHU has indicated that there are no confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Windsor and Essex County as of March 13, 2020 at 1pm, and the overall risk remains low for residents.

Based on the assessment by the WECHU, the Municipality of Leamington’s facilities will remain open and scheduled programming at the Leamington Kinsmen Recreation Complex will continue.

In the interest of caution and to help reduce the potential spread of infection and illness, the Municipality is taking the following precautionary measures at all municipal facilities:

  • Increased frequency of cleaning.
  • Increased frequency of staff hand washing with soap and water for 20 seconds or alcohol-based hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available.
  • Additional sanitization stations for visitors and staff have been made available.
  • Limit gatherings of greater than 250 people.
