Niagara, Ontario – Beginning Monday, March 23, all Niagara Region facilities, including Regional headquarters, public health centres, public works facilities and others, will be closed to general public access. Access to Regional facilities will be limited to necessary interactions, including deliveries, and Regional Council and committee meetings.
This proactive measure is being taken to limit the spread of COVID-19 and to ensure that Regional staff can continue to safely deliver essential services to Niagara residents. During this time, staff will also take measures to practice social distancing and avoid unnecessary in-person gatherings.

An Important Footnote from Doug Draper, reporter/publisher at Niagara At Large –
Before we come to the end of this post, Niagara’s regional government has also released some information about temporary changes it has made to waste collection service due to C)VID-19, and all in an effort to keep everyone, from those do the vital work of collecting waste at curb side, to the public at large healthy and safe.
Please take time to read the details of the temporary changes being put in place, effective this block of weekdays, staring March 23rd, by clicking on the following link – https://niagararegion.ca/news/article.aspx?news=1044&t=Niagara+Region+making+temporary+changes+to+waste+collection+due+to+COVID-19 .
Let us all remember that all of the measures being taken, as inconvenient or as off-putting as they may seem, are nothing if we can prevent what could be a health catastrophe if we do not take the proper precautions now.
Niagara At Large will continue to provide updates when necessary and when we can.
Meanwhile, we will also try to bring you some news and commentary on other matters of interest and concern to our region, our country and our world.
Stay tuned. Doug Draper
