Tecumseh Lays Out COVID-19 Plan


The Town of Tecumseh says it is implementing measures to protect residents, visitors and staff in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. 

“We have been working with information from the federal and provincial governments and directly with our local health agencies and municipal partners on Tecumseh’s response to COVID-19,” said Gary McNamara, Mayor of Tecumseh. “We are encouraging everyone to continue to monitor the situation and make appropriate decisions as it comes to their own health and that of their families."

The Town has activated a partial Emergency Operations Centre (EOC) consisting of the Town’s Community Emergency Management Coordinator (CEMC) —which is the Fire Chief — as well as the CAO and the Director Parks & Recreation Services who is responsible for facilities. The entire Senior Management Team is also assisting with the ongoing situation and remain on standby to the EOC.

All Hockey Canada programs, including those operated by Minor Hockey Associations, have been suspended for the remainder of the season.

Based on advice from the Windsor-Essex County Health Unit that the risk in this area is low, Tecumseh Arena remains open with March Break programming still being offered. Attendance control measures will be put in place during public skating to limit the number of attendees to 250 or less at a time.

Additional measures implemented at Town facilities include:

  • Increased cleaning of surfaces at Town Hall and the Tecumseh Arena with disinfectant
  • Installing additional hand sanitizer stations at Town Hall and Tecumseh Arena.

Tecumseh Transit’s service provider, First Student, has assured the Town that they have implemented appropriate cleaning on the Transit buses.

If you are ill or exhibiting symptoms of a respiratory illness, please avoid all public venues such as Town Hall and the Tecumseh Arena.
