Halloween Guidelines from Provincial Government

Trick-or-treating is permitted with the following measures in place:

Neighborhood Trick-or-Treating

  • Two meters distance must be maintained between individuals who are not in the same household/extended household at all times.
  • No direct physical contact should occur between trick-or-treaters and people distributing Halloween treats.
  • Participants should consider using tools (e.g. tongs) to distribute candy at a distance.
  • Physical distancing must be used when approaching houses (i.e. wait until group ahead is gone, take turns). For houses or neighborhoods anticipating a high volume of trick-or-treaters, people distributing candy are encouraged to place tape markers every two meters between doorways and sidewalks/driveways to promote physical distancing.
  • Due to the number of people potentially touching the treats prior to being handed out, consider cleaning candy wrappers with disinfectant wipes or holding the treats for 72 hours before consuming.
  • Only wrapped, store-bought treats should be distributed.
  • Common touch areas (e.g. handrails, doorbells, doorknobs, etc.) should be frequently cleaned and disinfected while distributing candy.
  • Trick-or-treaters should practice frequent hand hygiene by carrying portable hand sanitizer approved by Health Canada (DIN or NPN number).
  • People distributing candy should practice frequent hand hygiene while handing out Halloween treats.
  • Trick-or-treaters should consider incorporating non-medical masks (e.g. cloth or other materials) into their costumes, while ensuring their eyes are not covered for safety reasons.
  • Individuals handing out candy should consider wearing non-medical masks (e.g. cloth or other materials) where two meters of physical distance cannot be maintained.
  • Where possible, only one household member should hand out candy.

BE SAFE!

If you are not handing out candy due to COVID please put a note on your door!

Town of Nokomis Public Statement

In light of the pressures the Covid-19 pandemic are putting on our homes and businesses, the Town of Nokomis has decided to cancel the first two quarters of your utility fees for 2020 saving your household and/or business approximately $612.30. We hope this alleviates some pressure on everybody involved.

Each of us has been doing our part in keeping the risk to our community to Covid-19 as low as possible during this provincial state of emergency. This pandemic and the public health measures required to help slow the spread of the virus has had a major impact on our business community.

We hope these savings can go towards continuing to buy local and help support our businesses through such unprecedented times.

Thank you for your continuing efforts to follow the instruction of our provincial and federal public health officers, government officials and elected representatives to help put an end to the Covid-19 pandemic.

For those who have paid this years utility fees in advance, this payment will be applied to the last 2 quarters of 2020 and the first 2 quarters of 2021. And, for households that are behind on water and sewer utility payments please use this time to catch-up and bring your balance to zero.
