As Ontario’s West Coast reopens, County of Huron encourages flexibility and patience.

June 12, 2020

[Huron County, Ontario] – As the phase two re-openings begin, the County of Huron would like to remind all residents and visitors to continue to follow public-health measures and practice flexibility and courtesy with businesses and outdoor amenities.

As businesses slowly reopen and patios, beaches and recreational facilities begin to see the return of their seasonal tourists, Huron County Warden, Jim Ginn reminds visitors that while our doors are open, we may not yet be at full service.

“Although the province has allowed many businesses and public spaces to re-open, we encourage both residents and visitors to keep in mind that operators need time to ensure that they have the public-health measures in place to protect themselves, their employees and their customers.”

The County of Huron continues to work with businesses and tourism operators to provide support and resources throughout their re-openings.

Recently held virtual Tourism Recovery Town Halls allowed operators to share their questions and concerns and to hear about the County’s tourism initiatives which include: a new recently-launched website, created to act as a hub for up-to-date information and to promote the County’s key product and experience offerings; and the ‘In Your Backyard’ tourism marketing campaign, encouraging locals and seasonal residents to explore their own backyard through the quintessential summer experiences found on Ontario’s West Coast.

Huron County continues to urge all residents to practice physical distancing and proper hygiene protocols outlined by the Provincial Medical Officer of Health. Stay informed on the Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation in Huron County by visiting the Huron-Perth Public Health website.
