Grey Bruce COVID-19 Critical Threshold – Stay at home

Grey Bruce COVID-19 Critical Threshold – Stay at home

With the Grey Bruce Health Unit declaring a critical threshold of COVID-19 cases in Grey Bruce, it is a priority that everyone stay at home. The only exceptions are for essential travel. This is consistent with the Provincial Stay At Home OrderYou should only go out for necessities, such as:

  • the grocery store or pharmacy
  • health care services (including going to medical appointments or getting vaccinated)
  • outdoor exercise or walking pets in your community
  • work that cannot be done remotely
  • child care or school

Businesses must ensure all COVID-19 precautions are in place and followed.

Do not travel outside your region or the province unless absolutely necessary.

Read the full list of reasons you can go out in the regulation (PDF).


The Town of The Blue Mountains would like to advise residents that the Town Landfill and The Blue Mountains Public Library will be temporarily closed in response to the critical threshold and stay-at-home order announced by the Grey Bruce Public Health Unit.

Starting today, the landfill will be closed for the remainder of this week and early next week. Based on public health advice, it is anticipated that the landfill will reopen on Thursday, April 22, 2021. During this time, the landfill will continue to provide scheduled service to commercial operators.

The Blue Mountains Public Library will be closing curbside pickup through Sunday. Staff will be monitoring voicemail and email messages and responding to patron needs. Please leave detailed messages when calling or emailing to best handle your question.

Following the recommendations of the Medical Officer of Health, Grey County is closing all public spaces for 48 hours, including all forests properties and trails managed by the County. This decision will help limit the movement of people in the community while Public Health manages contact tracing for the recent surge of local cases. Properties will be closed until Saturday, April 17.

Grey County Warden Selwyn ‘Buck’ Hicks is alarmed by the surge in cases and high number of close contacts. 

“Grey County is echoing Public Health’s plea to the public to stay home while they manage this dangerous spike in COVID-19 cases. I know everyone is feeling tired; I know many of us are frustrated; but right now your community needs you to follow the direction of Public Health and put the needs of your community above your own desires,” said Warden Hicks. “Please, I implore everyone, stay at home. Only leave for essential purposes. If we don’t take this seriously and act now all of our effort and sacrifices from the past year will have been for nothing.”

While all Grey County-owned public spaces are to be considered closed until Saturday, all services will continue to be offered remotely through or by calling 1?800?567?4739.

On April 14, the Medical Officer of Health issued a statement asking everyone in Grey and Bruce Counties to consider themselves a carrier of COVID-19 for 48 hours due to a spike of more than 70 new cases in a 36-hour period.  Contact tracing and case management capacity has been stretched to its limits and staff are being redeployed from other programs, including vaccine clinics, to support case management.
