HALDIMAND—Since the Province of Ontario began loosening COVID-19 restrictions and allowing certain outdoor amenities to reopen (e.g. boat launches, non-contact sporting fields), Haldimand County has seen an increase in visitors utilizing these public spaces.
In order to address mounting health and safety concerns related to the absence of public washrooms in these areas (e.g. individuals relieving themselves in public), the County is moving forward with a plan to deploy portable washrooms to high traffic areas across the community.
The plan, which was developed in consultation with the Medical Officer of Health, will address the need for public washroom facilities through the duration of the pandemic, especially during the summer months.
