Following the recommendations of the Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit’s (SMDHU) medical officer of health, Dr. Charles Gardner, the Town of Collingwood will temporarily decline swim registrations or facility bookings from individuals whose primary residence is in a Red (Control) or Grey (Lockdown) Zone as identified in the provincial COVID protocols. Residents from outside of Ontario will also be temporarily restricted at this time. Please note that the Town of Collingwood reserves the right to ask for proof of residency during the booking process.

Dr. Charles Gardner issued an advisory letter to municipalities within the SMDHU recommending that individuals and families in higher transmission areas avoid travel to lower transmission areas (ie. from Red to Orange, from Yellow to Green) except for essential reasons. 

The Town’s recreational facilities include the Centennial Aquatic Centre, Central Park Arena, Eddie Bush Arena, Simcoe Street Theatre, and the Collingwood Museum.
