Town of Altona Response to COVID-19
Updated November 6, 2020
The Town of Altona is taking proactive measures to help reduce the impact of COVID-19. This includes:
- Closing facilities to the public, including the Millennium Exhibition Centre and the Administration Office. These facilities join the Altona Public Works Shop and the Fire Hall in being closed to the public. Residents are reminded that most or all services can be accessed through our website, over the phone, or by emailing us.
- Suspending recreation programs.
- Freezing municipal taxes for 2020
To see past measures, please see the archive of press releases at the bottom of this page.
All of these steps are in place to ensure the safety of our community, our staff, and the protection of essential services. We will continue to be hard at work delivering essential services such as protective services, clean water, wastewater treatment and many others, and keeping you informed. The Town of Altona encourages you to practice excellent hygiene, physical distancing, and find new ways to connect with your community. Physical distancing does not need to mean loneliness. As we work together to flatten the curve and slow down the spread of COVID-19, call your neighbours, chat with your friends virtually, and find new ways to socialize while maintaining distance.
