Given the high demand for Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), the Optimist Club of Collingwood has answered a call by the Mayor to assist in coordinating the supply and distribution of PPE locally. Volunteers with the Optimist Club of Collingwood are currently in the process of reaching out to local suppliers and end users with the goal of building a coordinated distribution system.
Collingwood director, writer, and professional actor, Rochelle Reynolds has been channeling her efforts into film-based storytelling projects in response to self-isolation and social distancing. This has led to Teddy Bear Theatre; a series designed for children about the importance of friendship, kindness, compassion, and authenticity.

Please take notice that boat launches in Collingwood remain closed to transient boaters until further notice from the Province of Ontario. The Collingwood boat launches are closed under the Province's Emergency Order to close Outdoor Recreational Amenities. On Tuesday, May 19, the Town of Collingwood will begin allowing marina tenants and seasonal boaters (with valid permit) to load in their vessel and tie to their assigned dock or slip. This will be by appointment only to ensure physical distancing and safety. Boat use in the marina and at the boat launch beyond load-in by appointment, is prohibited until further notice.
On Tuesday, May 12, join the Town of Collingwood and the Province of Ontario in a Day of Action on Litter, kicking off a Spring and Summer where we all become more aware of the impacts of waste on our environment, take action to prevent, reduce, and divert waste at home, and continue to keep Collingwood clean and beautiful for current residents and future generations.
This checklist is intended to help retail businesses ensure physical distancing and operate safely to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
Property owners may wish to obtain a land survey of their property and consult with a lawyer or surveyor regarding questions of land ownership.
Since many facilities have shut their doors over the last few weeks and have been mostly vacant, we are reminding you to get your water running! We are encouraging residents and business owners to follow the guidelines provided in the checklist only if no one has been using the water for at least 3 to 4 days. What this does is flush your internal plumbing system, as the water has sat in your pipes for longer than normal. Similar to how the Water Department flushes hydrants to clean out water mains, now is the time for you to flush your own system.

The Town of Collingwood, with recommendation from Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit, is asking you to stay at your chosen primary residence and also not to make day-trips or to visit cottages in Collingwood at this time. Collingwood is eager for re-opening and recovery, and in order to get to the end of this pandemic, we all must continue to stay at home and limit travel. The Town is excited to welcome you to Collingwood again with many great getaway options, after the Province’s State of Emergency orders have lifted and when it is safe to travel. It will be worth the wait!
