Several municipalities in Simcoe County have lifted fire bans including Ramara Township. In a statement, the Township said the decision was taken “to help residents in the community alleviate any mental and physical stress.”
A number of communities issued fire bans at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic so fire departments could focus on emergencies.
Fire bans remain in place in Adjala-Tosorontio, Bradford-West Gwillimbury, New Tecumseth, Oro-Medonte and Severn Township. All of Muskoka remains under a fire ban.
There is no fire ban in Barrie and Orillia.
