Town of Collingwood Restricts Municipal Recreational Facilities Usage to Individuals from Red & Grey Lockdown Areas
November 30, 2020
Corporate Service

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.

Collingwood Museum to Offer Victorian Halloween Virtual Event
October 15, 2020
Museum

Join Collingwood Museum staff on October 29 at 7:00 p.m. to explore the spooky side of the Victorian era through a selection of macabre objects from the museum’s artifact collection. The Victorian Halloween event will be broadcast on Facebook Live, so you can enjoy from the comfort of your home. 

Victorian culture is rich with imagery that we still associate with Halloween today. Whether it's haunted mansions, gruesome medical practices, gothic literature, or elaborate mourning rituals, many Victorian practices can be found in our favourite horror movies and Halloween traditions.
