Local municipalities are preparing themselves and closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation.

Shelburne's Mayor Wade Mills issued a statement yesterday saying they are working with health officials, Dufferin County and other municipalities to develop pandemic and business plans.

Mills says assures residents that they are taking action at a local level, to properly prepare and put the infrastructure in place to avoid any unnecessary disruptions to services.

The Town of Orangeville says their managers have met and are following the guidelines provided by Health Canada, the Ontario Ministry of Health and Wellington-Dufferin-Guelph Public Health.

They have implemented increasing the number of hand sanitizer stations in public facilities, and increased cleaning in those facilities -among other things.

In Caledon, they have activated their Emergency Operations Centre.

Mayor Allan Thompson says his top priority, is to ensure they're working hand-in-hand with the Region of Peel to monitor the situation and make decisions that are in the best interest of public safety for Caledon residents.

As of now all Town programs and services are currently being delivered as planned and all Town facilities remain open - including recreation programs and March Break camps.
