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 

The East Gwillimbury Sports Complex will reopen its doors to ice users, beginning on Tuesday September 7. Prior to entering the facility all participants, coaches, trainers, and spectators are required to complete and pass the active COVID screening.

Indoor facilities can open as per the provincial regulations at 50% capacity. To assist with the control of occupancy, participants are permitted to have 1 spectator to join them in the facility.

Facility Rentals 

As part of the Provincial Step 3 Reopening Plan, Town facilities can be reserved through our permitting process and meetings and group gatherings can take place with restrictions. Permit holders are reminded of the COVID-19 provincial and regional requirements and must operate in accordance with the Town’s safety protocols with the gathering limits, public health measures, including active screening. For more information, including how to book, please visit the Facilities and Rentals page.

East Gwillimbury Public Library 

EG Libraries are open for in-branch browsing, services such as photocopying and faxing, computer use, and outdoor story time and programs. Curbside pick-up and virtual programming are also still available.

The Library Board has decided to postpone the annual Giant Used Book Sale for a second year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Library Board understands that this is a much-anticipated event in the community and will instead host a scaled-back pop-up book sale at the Farmers’ Market on September 23 during Market Hours (2 to 7 p.m.). To learn more about programs and services available at the library, please visit East Gwillimbury Public Library's website.
