More Information

The Township of Zorra is taking steps to support our community's response to COVID-19 (coronavirus disease) and measures taken by Southwestern Public Health. We are monitoring our operations daily to ensure we are taking the right actions to protect our residents, employees and visitors. Visit our COVID-19 page for regular updates.

COVID-19 Update # 2



The Township of Zorra is continuing to take action in response to the spread of COVID-19 (novel coronavirus) in Canada.
In order to ensure business continuity and to make staff available for customer appointments, the Township is dividing its workforce into two groups that will work on alternating days. In addition, the two Public Works Shops will remain isolated from one another in case of infection in on one Shop.
Those staff members working from home on alternating have been provided tools to remain accessible through phone and email to members of the public. Staff can be reached at 519-485.2490 at the extension listed beside their name.

As a reminder, entry to the Municipal Office will be by appointment only. All recreation facilities are closed to the public until further notice.

Anyone who wishes to conduct in-person business is advised to phone 519-485-2490 and discuss their needs with a customer service representative. Callers will be directed to online services if available, or offered other options as appropriate.

If staff deem that an in-person visit to a Township Office is required, callers will be asked questions regarding their travel and health history prior to booking an appointment. Visitors with confirmed appointments should be prepared to show identification upon arrival.

The Township is also implementing enhanced cleaning and hygiene measures at all Township facilities. In addition, staff who have travelled internationally recently will be requested to self-quarantine.

The Township recognizes that these changing service levels may present a challenge to some citizens, however we would not take this action if we did not believe it was in the best interest of the community.
