The Town of East Gwillimbury (EG) continues to prepare plans in-line with Provincial and York Region Public Health Officials’ recommendations to ensure safe access to municipal facilities. 

Indoor amenities

Community centres and facilities 

During the current provincewide emergency break, indoor recreation facilities will be closed for programs, permits and public access including the Sports Complex, Holland Landing Community Centre and Ross Family Complex. Ice programs and permits have been cancelled and participants will be contacted via email and refunds issued. 

The library will modify its services to include contactless curbside pick-up, one-hour in-library computer use, printing and photocopying services. The library’s capacity limit will remain at five and anyone entering the facility will perform screening and contact tracing.

East Gwillimbury Public Library 

The Library is offering curbside pick-up, one-hour in-library computer use, printing and photocopying services. The library’s capacity limit will remain at five and anyone entering the facility will perform screening and contact tracing.

With no in-library browsing, customers are encouraged to place items on hold through their online account, the EGPL app, or by calling the branch for assistance. If residents are not sure what you want to read, they can participate in the “Borrow a Book Bundle” and let the library choose something for them. Each book bundle contains five carefully chosen titles selected by one of the library’s knowledgeable staff. 

 For more information visit their website.

Participate in a recreation program

During the beginning of COVID-19, the Town had to close all municipal facilities and cancel all in-person programs.

All of the videos are still available with fun fitness, and family activities on our YouTube channel.

The Town is running virtual programs. To learn more visit the Health & Active Living Guide page.
