Thank You For Physical Distancing. Please Keep It Up!
Today, Toronto Public Health released a map showing COVID-19 case counts by neighbourhoods. I want to remind everyone that we must remain vigilant and maintain good public health and hygiene practices. We cannot let all our hard work go to waste.
The City of Toronto, under the guidance of the Medical Officer of Health, is gradually reopening City facilities and restarting operations where it is safe to do so. As part of our phased resumption of services, 311 will now begin taking requests for waste bin exchanges. Requests to upsize or downsize a recycling or garbage bin can now be made by calling 311. Requests for a new garbage, recycling or green bin, additional bin or bin repair can also be made by calling 311.
The City of Toronto encourages the public to plan ahead for essential trips this weekend as the City will actively manage traffic which will be impacted by important expressway maintenance, roadway construction and safe physical activity options for residents.
