Dear Resident,

With Stage 3 upon us, we have the ability to gather indoors in certain settings, eat inside restaurants, and visit gyms with the appropriate measures in place. Public attractions like the Art Gallery of Ontario and the Royal Ontario Museum are open for families this summer. Personal care services that require removing a face covering are permitted with specific instructions to protect employees and patrons.

The City of Toronto has reopened recreational facilities for self-directed programs and services with attendance caps. Activities like indoor fitness, walking tracks, and weight rooms are available.

Residents can also access community centres for heat relief and washroom use. Lane and leisure swimming and drop-in sports options have also launched. The City has a list of public pools open to help everyone stay cool. Visit the City of Toronto’s website to confirm the most up-to-date instructions related to COVID-19 protocol and book reservations for City programming. https://www.toronto.ca/

Remember to stay safe and continue to follow all public health guidelines. Please get your first and second vaccine as soon as possible; there are pop-up clinics available in our community to serve you.

If you have questions about local developments, projects or need access to other City updates, please get in touch with me at 416-338-5335 or councillor_perruzza@toronto.ca.

Sincerely,

City Councillor Anthony Perruzza

Ward 7 – Humber River-Black Creek
