Project Restart: Reopening Middlesex Centre
With Ontario beginning to reopen and relax some of the regulations around COVID-19, Middlesex Centre has developed a three-phase plan for reopening our parks, facilities and the administration office. 


  • Phase 1 - parks open for walk-through and general use, arenas, community centres and other recreation services closed, municipal office closed to public, with most staff working from home 

  • Phase 2 - sports fields and courts open, limited opening of Wellness Centre and services such as the library and YMCA, expanded materials accepted at EnviroDepot, municipal office open by appointment only, with limited staff in the office

  • Phase 3 - playgrounds and all park amenities open, all facilities open, municipal office open

There are no timelines associated with reopening. Rather, the plan offers a road map to reopening, with timing based on guidance and direction from the province and Middlesex-London Health Unit. Based on this approach, we are just entering Phase 1 at this time.
