Town State of Emergency 

On July 24, 2020, the Province of Ontario passed Bill 195, which terminated the Provincial State of Emergency and extends the Provincial Emergency Orders for an initial period of 30 days. The Town of East Gwillimbury will remain under a regional and municipal declared State of Emergency and will continue to work with York Region Public Health and our neighbouring municipalities to determine when it will be safe to lift our State of Emergencies.

Over the last five months, East Gwillimbury and York Region residents have worked hard to help plank the curve, and reported cases of COVID-19 continue to decline. Currently in York Region statistics report that more than 2,700 cases have been resolved and there are approximately 230 active cases.  

By remaining in the current State of Emergency, Town Council have the flexibility to quickly respond to this health and economic emergency and provide support to our residents and businesses where needed.
