Gravenhurst council recently received an update from CAO Glen Davies on how the town is handling COVID-19.

Davies spoke about how the Town has responded to the province’s directives about opening up Ontario for business. Davies said the Town has experienced some lagging in response to the provincial announcements as time had to be spent reviewing, analyzing and deciding which areas were safe to open up. 

Re-opening of activities is discretionary and Gravenhurst has its own set of criteria to assess opening up, he said. 

Council heard that Gravenhurst Farmers Market is open and organizers are currently looking to now have artisans as part of the market again. Previously the Health Unit was only allowing food stalls.

The Muskoka Drive-in Theatre has also re-opened.
