Public Message;

 

The RM of Gimli is and will continue to work in cooperation with our Federal and Provincial partners in addressing public safety protocol in respect to COVID 19. 

 

To assist with keeping the risk to the general public minimal, it is critical that measures be taken to slow down the incidence of spread among our community and help prevent overwhelming the resources of our health care system. 

 

In recognition that we have residents that spend time abroad during the winter months we ask that upon your return home that you follow the provincial recommendations to self-quarantine for 14 days.

 

The RM of Gimli is implementing the following strategic actions, as of tomorrow, March 17th, 2020;

 

Administration Office:   Business will be conducted via phone, email, electronic banking and mail delivery service. The RM Office building will be closed to the public and access will be granted to staff only. 

 

Contact information will be posted on the front door for other agencies in the building. 

 

Council is reviewing methods by which we will continue to hold public meetings. 

 

Rec Centre:   Business will be conducted via phone, email, electronic banking and mail delivery service. The buildings will be closed to the public and access will be granted to staff only.  Memberships and programs will be extended or refunded. 

 

Public Works:  All operations will continue as usual, with hygienic best practices implemented. Business will be conducted via phone or email. The building will be closed to the public and access will be granted to staff only.
