Virtual Canada Day 
The Government of Canada is celebrating Canada Day virtually this year to bring us together and share our pride in being Canadian. The Town of Halton Hills is offering activities at the local level too. Follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram leading into Canada Day and on July 1st for inspiring quotes from Canadians, fun facts about our country and reflect on how Halton Hills has celebrated Canada Day events in the past.
Council Meeting on July 6
The Town will hold a Council meeting on July 6 at 6 p.m. In our efforts to contain the spread of COVID-19 and to protect all individuals, public attendance at Council meetings will not be permitted at this time.  The public may submit questions and/or comments regarding Agenda matters to clerks@haltonhills.ca prior to the meeting. Comments submitted may be considered as public information and entered into the public record.  
New Rainbow Crosswalk for Halton Hills
Supports Diversity and Inclusion
The Town of Halton Hills is pleased to announce the first ever rainbow crosswalk to be installed in downtown Georgetown this September. The multi-colour crosswalk will be adjacent to the Halton Hills Public Library (HHPL) Georgetown Branch and Cultural Centre where Market and Church Streets meet. Rainbow crosswalks are a way for communities and residents to express support, and show diversity and inclusion for their 2SLGBTQ+ residents.
Town Implements Over 20 New/Modified
Initiatives to Support Businesses
The Town continues to implement over 20 new and modified initiatives to position Halton Hills for an expedited economic recovery, as well as to remain competitive and ‘open for business’. These initiatives (highlighted at the June 18  Virtual Town Hall  meeting) are part of the Economic Recovery Action Plan and follow last week’s announcement that allowed Halton Region to move to Stage Two of the Province’s reopening framework.
Stay Current on COVID-19
Information on Town operations, facility closures and more can be found on the COVID-19 web page
Keeping Safe
Halton Region Public Health is focusing on those most at risk of COVID-19. The current priority is to hear from high-risk groups only:
  • Health care providers seeking or reporting information;
  • Those living or working in a healthcare setting or institution and experiencing symptoms of COVID-19; or
  • Those who have been in close contact with a confirmed case of COVID-19.

Not everyone requires testing. Most people with mild symptoms will recover on their own at home. Get rest, drink fluids, eat well and stay home. You do not need to contact Public Health.

If you are high risk please call 311, 905-825-6000 or toll free at 1-866-442-5866 to start the assessment process. Residents must have an appointment to attend an Assessment Centre.
If you have SEVERE symptoms, please call 9-1-1 immediately.
