Update: July 8th 2020 Hello campers and seasonal campers: Grey Bruce Medical Officer of Health, Doctor Ian Arra, is giving notice of intent to Order the mandatory wearing of face coverings in enclosed public places. The Order will be issued and coming into effect within the next 10 days as per consultation with stakeholders. Public Health has been in ongoing discussion with stakeholders in respect to the details and language of the Order. This will ensure the Order is appropriate and proportionate to the local needs and that it can be implemented in a manner that is practical, equitable, and does not infringe on the rights of people who cannot tolerate facial covering due to medical conditions. Accumulating epidemiological evidence indicates that the widespread use of Face Coverings in public decreases spread of respiratory droplets, and expert opinion supports the widespread use of face coverings to decrease transmission of COVID-19. “Wearing of face coverings in enclosed public spaces further reduces the risk of transmission of COVID-19.” says Grey Bruce Medical Officer of Health, Dr. Ian Arra. “It is of critical importance that the use of face coverings does not become a replacement to the current effective practices of physical distancing, handwashing, screening for symptoms among others. Face covering should be used in combination with these practices to break the chain of transmission of the virus.” For more details: https://bit.ly/2Z4EWy2

April 7th, 2021 From Ontario Private Campground Association Dear Members,   Today, April 7th, 2021, the Ontario Government issued a state of emergency and enacted a “Stay-at-Home” order. This order will take effect at 12:01 a.m. on Thursday April 8, 2021 and last for four weeks. There is a likely possibility that the state of emergency is extended beyond the next four weeks.   The Stay-at-Home order brings in new restrictions to retail, big box stores, and additional sectors. Big box stores are limited to essential items only for in-person shopping. Non-essential retail stores are ordered closed and can only offer curb-side pickup.   Campgrounds restrictions are similar. However, it is important to remember that the “Stay-at-Home” order means nobody should be travelling unless it is absolutely essential. Checking on your trailer, or stopping by for a day visit is not essential and should not be permitted by campgrounds. The camp is closed at this time and we are asking seasonals to remain at home. We hope to see you all soon, until then stay safe and healthy :)

Update from Ontario Private Campground Association May 20, 2021 Dear Members, Today, May 20, 2021, the Ontario Government announced the revision of the Reopening Ontario Act, 2020. This Roadmap to Reopen outlines 3 stages that the province will take to unlock the economy.  The Roadmap to Reopen will begin on June 14th, 2021, the Stay-at-Home order is scheduled to expire on June 2nd, 2021. At this time, Camping In Ontario is working to determine what restrictions will exist in the two week window assuming the measures proposed are met. As it stands, the Stay-at-Home order could be extended until the June 14th target date set out by the Ontario Government. For clarification, campgrounds will be permitted all types of camping for recreational purposes upon entering Stage 1, which could fall as late as June 14th.
Your campground cannot offer more services nor change protocols due to the expiration of the Stay-at-Home order. Your campground will remain under the provisions set out in O. Reg. 82/20. Meaning that you may operate in the following capacity: 26. (1) Seasonal campgrounds that meet the following conditions: 1. Campsites must be made available only for trailers and recreational vehicles that, i. are used by individuals who are in need of housing, or ii. are permitted to be there by the terms of a full season contract. 2.

Other areas of the seasonal campground must be closed to the general public and must only be opened for the purpose of preparing the seasonal campground for reopening. Regarding the Roadmap to Reopen, it is unclear at this time which areas of your campground are to remain closed to the public when we enter Stage 1. Camping In Ontario is currently working to learn more about what this means for the sector.
