MICRO PPE PROCUREMENT PORTAL

12:00 AM — 11:59 PM

MICRO PPE PROCUREMENT PORTAL

Local Companies Helping Local Healthcare and Essential Services Currently, the Federal and Provincial governments are working toward procuring large quantities of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). In the short term, there are local companies across Halton Region which can help alleviate short-term critical supply of PPE for local hospitals and long-term care facilities, as well as, essential service businesses. No amount is too small. The Chambers of Commerce of Halton Region in partnership with municipal, provincial and federal governments are working hard to ensure local businesses connect to fulfill urgent supply. If you have non-PPE items, such as food, that you want to make available, please visit https://www.miltonchamber.ca/halton-covid-19-response/ and follow the registration link for non-PPE. The Chamber and our partners will facilitate offline matching. We’re all in this together. We need your support. #HaltonStrong

Halton Hills Extends Recreation Program Cancellations and Facility Closures

12:00 AM — 11:59 PM

The Town of Halton Hills has made the decision to cancel all registered programs and facility rentals until June 22, 2020. All recreation facilities will also remain closed until this date with consideration given to reopening should conditions allow. The Town’s action aligns with direction from the Medical Officers of Health and provincial orders to practice 'physical distancing' and avoid large gatherings. Previously the Town closed park amenities. “This decision does not come lightly. We are taking a responsible approach that aligns with our municipal partners and supports our efforts to safeguard the community," said Mayor Rick Bonnette. "The Town is ready to respond to changing conditions and offer programs and open facilities on short notice if warranted." Extended facility closures include: - Acton Arena and Community Centre, - Mold-Masters SportsPlex, - Gellert Community Centre, - Cedarvale Community Centre, - Acton Lion’s and Georgetown Indoor Pools, - Cultural Centre and John Elliott Theatre, - Hillsview Active Living Centres (Georgetown and Acton), - Halton Hills Youth Centres (Georgetown and Acton). Town staff is reaching out to program participants and facility renters advising of the cancellations and reimbursement process, and asks for the public’s patience as a high volume of reimbursement transactions is processed in the coming weeks. At this time, summer programs have not been cancelled and the Town will reassess this decision later based on recommendations by the Medical Officer of Health. Residents with questions about registered programs or cancellations can call 905-873-2600, ext. 2275 or email recreation@haltonhills.ca. More information on the Town’s response to COVID-19 can be found on haltonhills.ca/covid19

COMMUNITY SUPPORT ACTION TEAM FORMED

12:00 AM — 11:59 PM

TOWN FORMS COMMUNITY SUPPORT ACTION TEAM TO ASSIST VULNERABLE RESIDENTS DURING COVID-19

HALTON HILLS, ON – In partnership with Halton Region, surrounding municipalities and local organizations, the Town of Halton Hills has established the Community Support Action Team (CSAT) to aid the community’s most vulnerable during COVID-19. In past weeks, Access Halton (311) and Public Health have played a central role in responding to public inquiries. In an effort to assist, the CSAT has developed a registry of resources available to residents who cannot access essential goods through other support networks; are self-isolating due to compromised immune status; are financially insecure, or are experiencing mental health challenges due to isolation. “The CSAT is a terrific resource for our community and I’m pleased that we are able to help bridge the gap for residents to access services of other levels of government," said Mayor Rick Bonnette. “Connecting residents to agencies and organizations is fundamental to taking care of those in our community." Residents in need are encouraged to contact Service Halton Hills at 905-873-2600 or email servicehh@haltonhills.ca and staff will direct their call to the appropriate agency on the support registry. The Town will not only play a key role in supporting vulnerable residents but will also work to support those organizations providing vital services to the community. These services include food security, mental health support, housing, youth services, active living and community safety. “Our staff work with community supports on a daily basis," said Chief Administrative Officer Brent Marshall. “Staff has the ability to be flexible and adaptive and the establishment of the CSAT reflects current priorities." Residents are also invited to visit the Town’s COVID-19 Share the Care page on lesttalkhaltonhills.ca to share their experiences and spread the word about local organizations and agencies working to support the vulnerable. Town staff is closely monitoring the page and will consider additional organizations that could benefit the registry. For CSAT and updates regarding Town operations, programs and services, visit the Town of Halton Hills' COVID-19 webpage, https://www.haltonhills.ca/covid19/. For health-related information, follow Halton Region Public Health as the definitive source for COVID-19 and all public health information.

TOWN CRACKS DOWN ON LITTER OF PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT (PPE)

12:00 AM — 11:59 PM

TOWN CRACKS DOWN ON LITTER OF PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT (PPE)

HALTON HILLS, ON – It would seem to be common sense but apparently that is being thrown away along with personal protective equipment – and not in waste receptacles. As more and more people are wearing gloves, face masks or coverings, these items are being found in parking lots, natural areas and on streets as some residents are quick to discard them. “Use a garbage can or take it home and throw it out there," said the Mayor. “The Town should not have to tell people that littering is an offense and more than that, relying on others to dispose of their discarded personal protective equipment is a health hazard.” It’s a problem being faced by a number of communities and one that is addressed within the existing community standards by-law: Deposit of Refuse and Littering 3. (1) No Person shall throw, place or deposit Refuse or cause or permit Refuse to be placed upon: (a) Private Property, without the consent of the Owner of the property; (b) Town Property without the written consent of the Town; (c) the Property of the Regional Municipality of Halton or of a local board without the written consent of the Regional Municipality of Halton or the local board; or (d) a Highway. According to Chief Administrative Officer Brent Marshall, “The fine is $200. This is a health issue. We’re in the midst of a pandemic and careless discard of masks and gloves is simply unacceptable." The Town is asking residents to call the COVID-19 hotline at 905-825-4722 to report an incident and request the presence of a by-law officer. If the person who has littered has left the area, providing the licence plate of the vehicle would be helpful.

COMMUNITY SUPPORT ACTION TEAM FORMED

12:00 AM — 11:59 PM

TOWN FORMS COMMUNITY SUPPORT ACTION TEAM TO ASSIST VULNERABLE RESIDENTS DURING COVID-19

HALTON HILLS, ON – In partnership with Halton Region, surrounding municipalities and local organizations, the Town of Halton Hills has established the Community Support Action Team (CSAT) to aid the community’s most vulnerable during COVID-19. In past weeks, Access Halton (311) and Public Health have played a central role in responding to public inquiries. In an effort to assist, the CSAT has developed a registry of resources available to residents who cannot access essential goods through other support networks; are self-isolating due to compromised immune status; are financially insecure, or are experiencing mental health challenges due to isolation. “The CSAT is a terrific resource for our community and I’m pleased that we are able to help bridge the gap for residents to access services of other levels of government," said Mayor Rick Bonnette. “Connecting residents to agencies and organizations is fundamental to taking care of those in our community." Residents in need are encouraged to contact Service Halton Hills at 905-873-2600 or email servicehh@haltonhills.ca and staff will direct their call to the appropriate agency on the support registry. The Town will not only play a key role in supporting vulnerable residents but will also work to support those organizations providing vital services to the community. These services include food security, mental health support, housing, youth services, active living and community safety. “Our staff work with community supports on a daily basis," said Chief Administrative Officer Brent Marshall. “Staff has the ability to be flexible and adaptive and the establishment of the CSAT reflects current priorities." Residents are also invited to visit the Town’s COVID-19 Share the Care page on lesttalkhaltonhills.ca to share their experiences and spread the word about local organizations and agencies working to support the vulnerable. Town staff is closely monitoring the page and will consider additional organizations that could benefit the registry. For CSAT and updates regarding Town operations, programs and services, visit the Town of Halton Hills' COVID-19 webpage, https://www.haltonhills.ca/covid19/. For health-related information, follow Halton Region Public Health as the definitive source for COVID-19 and all public health information.

Halton Hills Extends Recreation Program Cancellations and Facility Closures

12:00 AM — 11:59 PM

The Town of Halton Hills has made the decision to cancel all registered programs and facility rentals until June 22, 2020. All recreation facilities will also remain closed until this date with consideration given to reopening should conditions allow. The Town’s action aligns with direction from the Medical Officers of Health and provincial orders to practice 'physical distancing' and avoid large gatherings. Previously the Town closed park amenities. “This decision does not come lightly. We are taking a responsible approach that aligns with our municipal partners and supports our efforts to safeguard the community," said Mayor Rick Bonnette. "The Town is ready to respond to changing conditions and offer programs and open facilities on short notice if warranted." Extended facility closures include: - Acton Arena and Community Centre, - Mold-Masters SportsPlex, - Gellert Community Centre, - Cedarvale Community Centre, - Acton Lion’s and Georgetown Indoor Pools, - Cultural Centre and John Elliott Theatre, - Hillsview Active Living Centres (Georgetown and Acton), - Halton Hills Youth Centres (Georgetown and Acton). Town staff is reaching out to program participants and facility renters advising of the cancellations and reimbursement process, and asks for the public’s patience as a high volume of reimbursement transactions is processed in the coming weeks. At this time, summer programs have not been cancelled and the Town will reassess this decision later based on recommendations by the Medical Officer of Health. Residents with questions about registered programs or cancellations can call 905-873-2600, ext. 2275 or email recreation@haltonhills.ca. More information on the Town’s response to COVID-19 can be found on haltonhills.ca/covid19

TOWN CRACKS DOWN ON LITTER OF PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT (PPE)

12:00 AM — 11:59 PM

TOWN CRACKS DOWN ON LITTER OF PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT (PPE)

HALTON HILLS, ON – It would seem to be common sense but apparently that is being thrown away along with personal protective equipment – and not in waste receptacles. As more and more people are wearing gloves, face masks or coverings, these items are being found in parking lots, natural areas and on streets as some residents are quick to discard them. “Use a garbage can or take it home and throw it out there," said the Mayor. “The Town should not have to tell people that littering is an offense and more than that, relying on others to dispose of their discarded personal protective equipment is a health hazard.” It’s a problem being faced by a number of communities and one that is addressed within the existing community standards by-law: Deposit of Refuse and Littering 3. (1) No Person shall throw, place or deposit Refuse or cause or permit Refuse to be placed upon: (a) Private Property, without the consent of the Owner of the property; (b) Town Property without the written consent of the Town; (c) the Property of the Regional Municipality of Halton or of a local board without the written consent of the Regional Municipality of Halton or the local board; or (d) a Highway. According to Chief Administrative Officer Brent Marshall, “The fine is $200. This is a health issue. We’re in the midst of a pandemic and careless discard of masks and gloves is simply unacceptable." The Town is asking residents to call the COVID-19 hotline at 905-825-4722 to report an incident and request the presence of a by-law officer. If the person who has littered has left the area, providing the licence plate of the vehicle would be helpful.

TOWN FORMS COMMUNITY SUPPORT ACTION TEAM TO ASSIST VULNERABLE RESIDENTS DURING COVID-19

HALTON HILLS, ON – In partnership with Halton Region, surrounding municipalities and local organizations, the Town of Halton Hills has established the Community Support Action Team (CSAT) to aid the community’s most vulnerable during COVID-19. In past weeks, Access Halton (311) and Public Health have played a central role in responding to public inquiries. In an effort to assist, the CSAT has developed a registry of resources available to residents who cannot access essential goods through other support networks; are self-isolating due to compromised immune status; are financially insecure, or are experiencing mental health challenges due to isolation. “The CSAT is a terrific resource for our community and I’m pleased that we are able to help bridge the gap for residents to access services of other levels of government," said Mayor Rick Bonnette. “Connecting residents to agencies and organizations is fundamental to taking care of those in our community." Residents in need are encouraged to contact Service Halton Hills at 905-873-2600 or email servicehh@haltonhills.ca and staff will direct their call to the appropriate agency on the support registry. The Town will not only play a key role in supporting vulnerable residents but will also work to support those organizations providing vital services to the community. These services include food security, mental health support, housing, youth services, active living and community safety. “Our staff work with community supports on a daily basis," said Chief Administrative Officer Brent Marshall. “Staff has the ability to be flexible and adaptive and the establishment of the CSAT reflects current priorities." Residents are also invited to visit the Town’s COVID-19 Share the Care page on lesttalkhaltonhills.ca to share their experiences and spread the word about local organizations and agencies working to support the vulnerable. Town staff is closely monitoring the page and will consider additional organizations that could benefit the registry.

Halton Hills Extends Recreation Program Cancellations and Facility Closures

12:00 AM — 11:59 PM

The Town of Halton Hills has made the decision to cancel all registered programs and facility rentals until June 22, 2020. All recreation facilities will also remain closed until this date with consideration given to reopening should conditions allow. The Town’s action aligns with direction from the Medical Officers of Health and provincial orders to practice 'physical distancing' and avoid large gatherings. Previously the Town closed park amenities. “This decision does not come lightly. We are taking a responsible approach that aligns with our municipal partners and supports our efforts to safeguard the community," said Mayor Rick Bonnette. "The Town is ready to respond to changing conditions and offer programs and open facilities on short notice if warranted." Extended facility closures include: - Acton Arena and Community Centre, - Mold-Masters SportsPlex, - Gellert Community Centre, - Cedarvale Community Centre, - Acton Lion’s and Georgetown Indoor Pools, - Cultural Centre and John Elliott Theatre, - Hillsview Active Living Centres (Georgetown and Acton), - Halton Hills Youth Centres (Georgetown and Acton). Town staff is reaching out to program participants and facility renters advising of the cancellations and reimbursement process, and asks for the public’s patience as a high volume of reimbursement transactions is processed in the coming weeks. At this time, summer programs have not been cancelled and the Town will reassess this decision later based on recommendations by the Medical Officer of Health. Residents with questions about registered programs or cancellations can call 905-873-2600, ext. 2275 or email recreation@haltonhills.ca. More information on the Town’s response to COVID-19 can be found on haltonhills.ca/covid19

TOWN FORMS COMMUNITY SUPPORT ACTION TEAM TO ASSIST VULNERABLE RESIDENTS DURING COVID-19

HALTON HILLS, ON – In partnership with Halton Region, surrounding municipalities and local organizations, the Town of Halton Hills has established the Community Support Action Team (CSAT) to aid the community’s most vulnerable during COVID-19. In past weeks, Access Halton (311) and Public Health have played a central role in responding to public inquiries. In an effort to assist, the CSAT has developed a registry of resources available to residents who cannot access essential goods through other support networks; are self-isolating due to compromised immune status; are financially insecure, or are experiencing mental health challenges due to isolation. “The CSAT is a terrific resource for our community and I’m pleased that we are able to help bridge the gap for residents to access services of other levels of government," said Mayor Rick Bonnette. “Connecting residents to agencies and organizations is fundamental to taking care of those in our community." Residents in need are encouraged to contact Service Halton Hills at 905-873-2600 or email servicehh@haltonhills.ca and staff will direct their call to the appropriate agency on the support registry. The Town will not only play a key role in supporting vulnerable residents but will also work to support those organizations providing vital services to the community. These services include food security, mental health support, housing, youth services, active living and community safety. “Our staff work with community supports on a daily basis," said Chief Administrative Officer Brent Marshall. “Staff has the ability to be flexible and adaptive and the establishment of the CSAT reflects current priorities." Residents are also invited to visit the Town’s COVID-19 Share the Care page on lesttalkhaltonhills.ca to share their experiences and spread the word about local organizations and agencies working to support the vulnerable. Town staff is closely monitoring the page and will consider additional organizations that could benefit the registry.

TOWN CRACKS DOWN ON LITTER OF PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT (PPE)

TOWN CRACKS DOWN ON LITTER OF PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT (PPE)

HALTON HILLS, ON – It would seem to be common sense but apparently that is being thrown away along with personal protective equipment – and not in waste receptacles. As more and more people are wearing gloves, face masks or coverings, these items are being found in parking lots, natural areas and on streets as some residents are quick to discard them. “Use a garbage can or take it home and throw it out there," said the Mayor. “The Town should not have to tell people that littering is an offense and more than that, relying on others to dispose of their discarded personal protective equipment is a health hazard.” It’s a problem being faced by a number of communities and one that is addressed within the existing community standards by-law: Deposit of Refuse and Littering 3. (1) No Person shall throw, place or deposit Refuse or cause or permit Refuse to be placed upon: (a) Private Property, without the consent of the Owner of the property; (b) Town Property without the written consent of the Town; (c) the Property of the Regional Municipality of Halton or of a local board without the written consent of the Regional Municipality of Halton or the local board; or (d) a Highway. According to Chief Administrative Officer Brent Marshall, “The fine is $200. This is a health issue. We’re in the midst of a pandemic and careless discard of masks and gloves is simply unacceptable." The Town is asking residents to call the COVID-19 hotline at 905-825-4722 to report an incident and request the presence of a by-law officer. If the person who has littered has left the area, providing the licence plate of the vehicle would be helpful.

If the person who has littered has left the area, providing the licence plate of the vehicle would be helpful.

Halton Hills Extends Recreation Program Cancellations and Facility Closures

12:00 AM — 11:59 PM

The Town of Halton Hills has made the decision to cancel all registered programs and facility rentals until June 22, 2020. All recreation facilities will also remain closed until this date with consideration given to reopening should conditions allow. The Town’s action aligns with direction from the Medical Officers of Health and provincial orders to practice 'physical distancing' and avoid large gatherings. Previously the Town closed park amenities. “This decision does not come lightly. We are taking a responsible approach that aligns with our municipal partners and supports our efforts to safeguard the community," said Mayor Rick Bonnette. "The Town is ready to respond to changing conditions and offer programs and open facilities on short notice if warranted." Extended facility closures include: - Acton Arena and Community Centre, - Mold-Masters SportsPlex, - Gellert Community Centre, - Cedarvale Community Centre, - Acton Lion’s and Georgetown Indoor Pools, - Cultural Centre and John Elliott Theatre, - Hillsview Active Living Centres (Georgetown and Acton), - Halton Hills Youth Centres (Georgetown and Acton). Town staff is reaching out to program participants and facility renters advising of the cancellations and reimbursement process, and asks for the public’s patience as a high volume of reimbursement transactions is processed in the coming weeks. At this time, summer programs have not been cancelled and the Town will reassess this decision later based on recommendations by the Medical Officer of Health. Residents with questions about registered programs or cancellations can call 905-873-2600, ext. 2275 or email recreation@haltonhills.ca. More information on the Town’s response to COVID-19 can be found on haltonhills.ca/covid19

COMMUNITY SUPPORT ACTION TEAM FORMED

12:00 AM — 11:59 PM

TOWN FORMS COMMUNITY SUPPORT ACTION TEAM TO ASSIST VULNERABLE RESIDENTS DURING COVID-19

HALTON HILLS, ON – In partnership with Halton Region, surrounding municipalities and local organizations, the Town of Halton Hills has established the Community Support Action Team (CSAT) to aid the community’s most vulnerable during COVID-19. In past weeks, Access Halton (311) and Public Health have played a central role in responding to public inquiries. In an effort to assist, the CSAT has developed a registry of resources available to residents who cannot access essential goods through other support networks; are self-isolating due to compromised immune status; are financially insecure, or are experiencing mental health challenges due to isolation. “The CSAT is a terrific resource for our community and I’m pleased that we are able to help bridge the gap for residents to access services of other levels of government," said Mayor Rick Bonnette. “Connecting residents to agencies and organizations is fundamental to taking care of those in our community." Residents in need are encouraged to contact Service Halton Hills at 905-873-2600 or email servicehh@haltonhills.ca and staff will direct their call to the appropriate agency on the support registry. The Town will not only play a key role in supporting vulnerable residents but will also work to support those organizations providing vital services to the community. These services include food security, mental health support, housing, youth services, active living and community safety. “Our staff work with community supports on a daily basis," said Chief Administrative Officer Brent Marshall. “Staff has the ability to be flexible and adaptive and the establishment of the CSAT reflects current priorities." Residents are also invited to visit the Town’s COVID-19 Share the Care page on lesttalkhaltonhills.ca to share their experiences and spread the word about local organizations and agencies working to support the vulnerable. Town staff is closely monitoring the page and will consider additional organizations that could benefit the registry. For CSAT and updates regarding Town operations, programs and services, visit the Town of Halton Hills' COVID-19 webpage, https://www.haltonhills.ca/covid19/. For health-related information, follow Halton Region Public Health as the definitive source for COVID-19 and all public health information.

TOWN CRACKS DOWN ON LITTER OF PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT (PPE)

12:00 AM — 11:59 PM

TOWN CRACKS DOWN ON LITTER OF PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT (PPE)

HALTON HILLS, ON – It would seem to be common sense but apparently that is being thrown away along with personal protective equipment – and not in waste receptacles. As more and more people are wearing gloves, face masks or coverings, these items are being found in parking lots, natural areas and on streets as some residents are quick to discard them. “Use a garbage can or take it home and throw it out there," said the Mayor. “The Town should not have to tell people that littering is an offense and more than that, relying on others to dispose of their discarded personal protective equipment is a health hazard.” It’s a problem being faced by a number of communities and one that is addressed within the existing community standards by-law: Deposit of Refuse and Littering 3. (1) No Person shall throw, place or deposit Refuse or cause or permit Refuse to be placed upon: (a) Private Property, without the consent of the Owner of the property; (b) Town Property without the written consent of the Town; (c) the Property of the Regional Municipality of Halton or of a local board without the written consent of the Regional Municipality of Halton or the local board; or (d) a Highway. According to Chief Administrative Officer Brent Marshall, “The fine is $200. This is a health issue. We’re in the midst of a pandemic and careless discard of masks and gloves is simply unacceptable." The Town is asking residents to call the COVID-19 hotline at 905-825-4722 to report an incident and request the presence of a by-law officer. If the person who has littered has left the area, providing the licence plate of the vehicle would be helpful.
