As a response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Town of Essex has taken additional action to prevent the spread of the virus and reduce its impact on the community.

All playgrounds have been closed to the public, while passive parks and multi-use trails remain open. Park and trail users are reminded to maintain the appropriate physical distance of two meters from other users, as recommended by public health officials.

Public Works and Community Services staff continue to operate in the community. Road and parks maintenance, for example, will be conducted as usual to ensure public safety. Residents are asked to maintain appropriate physical distance from Town employees.

Garbage, recycle, and yard waste collection continues. Residents are asked to refrain from assisting in collection. Garbage must be bagged and tied. Loose garbage in pails or untied bags will not be collected due to health and safety concerns.
