Bradford-West Gwillimbury to reopen some municipal services as of July 20

No recreation services or facilities to reopen just yet

Bradford West Gwillimbury is ready to open up a few more doors.

The Town announced on Monday morning it is introducing a phased reopening of municipal services, but the first phase will not include recreational programs or facilities.

However, the initial step will include the general administration office including bylaw enforcement, as of Monday the 20th, as well as building services for permits and inspections, and its community services office for transportation or water needs.

The town will also be reopening its Development and Engineering offices, along with the finance department. All will be available to the public from Monday to Friday, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., effective Monday.

New measures have been implemented for the protection of staff and the public, including the installation of glass at reception counters, maximum capacities for indoor spaces, the provision of hand sanitizer, COVID-19 screening and logging of any visitors who need to go farther than the reception area. Visitors are asked to wear a mask in compliance with a recent order making them mandatory in any public indoor space.

The Bradford West Gwillimbury library will continue to offer online programming and curbside pickup for now.
