Mapleton Township extends closures indefinitely

MAPLETON – The Township of Mapleton has extended indefinitely the closure of all municipal facilities.

“We have decided that at this time it is not fair to give deadlines … which we cannot guarantee,” states an April 20 press release from the township.

“We will continue to keep residents updated with any new information as it comes in.”

The closures, originally announced on March 16, include the township administration office, parks and playgrounds, PMD Arena, Moorefield Community Centre, Alma Community Centre and the Moorefield Optimist Hall.

Township officials extended the closures on March 30.

The municipality states a full refund will be issued for any cancellations of events within the facilities.

“As COVID-19 progresses, the Township of Mapleton has continued to work closely with Wellington-Dufferin-Guelph Public Health, the County of Wellington and Emergency Medical Services,” states the April 20 press release.

“After much consultation, we have decided to close all Township facilities indefinitely.”
