The Township of Augusta is taking additional steps to protect residents during the COVID-19 pandemic.
A new COVID-19 hotline is set to activate on Thursday, with the goal of allowing residents to reach out for services, including grocery delivery, senior assistance and mental health support. The number is 613-348-3455 ext. 222.
People can leave a message and staff will return their call as soon as possible, according to a press release sent out by the township.
Augusta is also reminding residents that all public amenities and facilities are closed to the general public until further notice. The waste transfer sites remain open, with a limit of six vehicles at a time.
Mayor Doug Malanka says he’s thankful to residents for cooperating with measures put in place to protect everyone from the spread of COVID-19. He noted it’s important for people to limit travel outside their residences to what is truly essential at this time.
Updates will continue to be provided on the township’s website and social media platforms.
