Update March 21, 2021 – We are no longer limited to 4 patrons per table (since they are all from the same household, or live alone or are a caregiver for somebody at the table)
Effective March 5 – April 9, 2021
Peterborough Public Health (PPH) is requiring residents to dine out only with household members in order to prevent further local spread of COVID-19, especially as the number of presumed variant cases rise.
Peterborough Public Health has issued a formal Letter of Instruction to all food premises with dining areas to help further protect the community and slow the spread of COVID-19. These instructions were designed to minimize local risk, align with the Reopening Ontario Act, 2020, and require all local food premises operators to obtain verbal attestation that a patron wishing to be seated at the same table with others in a public dining area:
- is from the same household, or
- is a caregiver, or
- lives alone and is joining one other household
“I would also like to remind local residents that the earlier concept of social circles doesn’t apply anymore. This was paused by the Ontario government on October 2,” explained Dr. Salvaterra. “Please show support for our local food premises by ordering takeout, or dining with household contacts only.”
Elmhirst’s Resort is committed to the health & safety of our team. We are complying with all Peterborough Public Health, Public Health Ontario and Public Health Agency of Canada recommendations.
We thank you for your cooperation and understanding as we continue to navigate these ever changing circumstances and make every effort to keep our guests and staff safe.
