Tecumseh Town Council has ordered the cancellation of all public activities at the Tecumseh Arena, St. Clair Beach Community Centre, the Golden Age Club, the Tecumseh Historical Society Museum and the Sandwich South Cultural and Resource Centre.  All of these facilities will remain closed until further notice.

The Parks and Recreation Office located in the Tecumseh Arena will remain open to the extent needed for front-line customer service of our Parks & Recreation services.

“This is solely a proactive, precautionary measure based on the alerts from the federal government on Saturday and with the support of the Windsor-Essex Medical Officer of Health,” said Gary McNamara, Mayor of Tecumseh. “The Windsor-Essex Health Unit has advised that there are still no local cases of COVID-19 and our risk continues to remain low. We are taking pre-emptive measures to keep that risk level low. We are not happy we have to cancel activities—especially as many families have had to cancel March Break plans—but we are acting to stop the community spread of any illness and particularly COVID-19.”
