Town Hall

The Town of Orangeville is providing notice that an employee has tested positive for COVID-19. The Town is advising the community out of an abundance of caution as the employee does not generally have contact with the public as part of the person’s municipal role.

The employee is self-isolating at home under the direction of Public Health which has completed contact tracing. The Town is providing support as needed. The employee was predominantly working from home and followed protocols in place while in the workplace. The area where the staff member worked has been deep cleaned. The Town extends its best wishes to the employee and hopes for a speedy recovery.

The Town has and continues to follow Public Health guidelines and has the health and safety of staff – and the community -- as a top priority. It is important for everyone to stay diligent and continue to practice public health measures to reduce the transmission of COVID-19 in our community. These measures include:

  • Washing hands frequently with soap and water for a minimum of 20 seconds
  • Staying home if sick, self-isolating from others and getting tested
  • Keeping a physical distance of at least two metres from others in your group, unless they are household members or in your social circle of 10
  • Wearing a mask or face covering in an enclosed space, especially in settings where it is difficult to maintain a physical distance from others
  • Meeting up outside and keeping gathering times short
  • Taking extra precautions if people are elderly or have chronic health conditions
