February 27, 2021 - In an effort to level the playing field for ALL businesses during COVID restrictions, Mayor Macdonald ​sent a letter on behalf of Council and local businesses in Essa to Jim Wilson, MPP Simcoe-Grey, and Dr. Gardner, CMO Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit, advocating for small businesses to remain open du​ring the Grey Zone of the Province's COVID-19 Framework.  While Council agreed that the Pandemic is a serious health crisis, Council stated that this third lockdown will jeopardize the ability of small businesses to survive.  She urged the Province and local health unit to re-visit the COVID-19 Framework to make necessary changes to allow small businesses to remain open.
