COVID-19 | Non-Essential Businesses Must Close

Posted by Corporate Communications on Friday, April 3rd, 2020

Following advice from Ontario’s Chief Medical Officer of Health, on April 3, 2020, Ontario updated the list of essential businesses that can remain open. The restrictions are aimed at further reducing contact between people and stopping the spread of COVID-19.

By 11:59 p.m. Saturday, April 4, 2020, businesses that are not identified on this list must close their physical locations. Click the link to read the full list: https://www.ontario.ca/page/list-essential-workplaces#section-0

If you have questions about what will be open or impacts to your business or employment, call the Stop the Spread Business Information Line at 1-888-444-3659.

To report a non-essential business that is open in Port Colborne, email our Bylaw Department at bylawenforcement@portcolborne.ca. If after-hours, or urgent, call the Niagara Regional Police Services non-emergency line at 905-688-4111.
