Additionally, Richelieu Day Care will close at end of day today, March 16.

Essential services will continue to be delivered, including water purification, wastewater treatment, emergency services, and Cornwall Transit. Waste collection will continue.

Cornwall Transit is taking additional precautions, urging only those who must travel to do so. Essential travel includes those who must work, attend necessary medical appointments, and buy groceries. Transit buses will have several rows of seats blocked to ensure passengers are isolated from each other and from the driver. Passengers are encouraged to board by the rear door of the bus only. Passengers in wheelchairs or who must access the front door ramp, should book an appointment with the Handi-Transit coordinator at 613-930-2636.

Recreation facilities remain closed. Social & Housing Services offices are open for emergencies only.

“I want to echo the words of our Prime Minister – stay home. Only buy what you need,” said Mayor Bernadette Clement. “If you can help your neighbor, please do so. Right now, it’s essential that we work together to slow the spread of COVID-19. Please, please, stay home.”

The City of Cornwall will be connecting with partners to ensure that our most vulnerable residents are aware of the evolving situation, and have access to any necessary resources.
