Rural Municipality of Cornwallis

CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19)

Council of the Rural Municipality of Cornwallis will be enacting preventative measures to help slow the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19) and to minimize its impact on our health care system, and our community.

First and foremost, the RM of Cornwallis would encourage all members of the public to visit:

This is the Government of Manitoba website, and is updated frequently. Also, all health-related questions or concerns about the Coronavirus (COVID-19) can also be answered, by calling Health Links at 204-788-8200 or 1-888-315-9257, or your local health providers.

Further, the health and safety of all of our employees and the public, as well as maintaining essential services remain our top priorities. As such all Municipal facilities listed below, will be closed to the public effective immediately:

1.      Water Treatment Facilities

2.      Public Works Shops

3.      Municipal Office

Providing essential services such as daily production of potable water by Water Treatment Plant staff at the Chater Treatment Facility continues as per normal operating procedures, and protecting the safe operations of the facility remain of utmost importance to the Municipality.

The Municipal Office will be closed to the public.  Please know that you may conduct business with the Municipality by phone or e-mail.

We have set up mail boxes at our door for items to be dropped off during regular business hours, we will be monitoring this area and will be processing payments in a timely fashion. All receipts will be mailed if requested.

The Rural Municipality of Cornwallis is actively monitoring the situation, and will continue to evaluate and inform the public of any changes, as this Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic rapidly evolves.

 

Thank-you.

Rural Municipality of Cornwallis Council
