Halton Hills Mayor Rick Bonnette is encouraging residents to support local restaurants following the Ontario government’s recent announcement regarding new COVID-19 restrictions.

This week, the Provincial government announced several new restrictions such as reduced capacities and shutdowns that have raised concerns, particularly amongst local businesses.

As a result, Bonnette says there are several things that the community can do to help keep the economy afloat.

“I am hearing from restaurants who have ordered supplies to prepare for indoor dining that are now deeply concerned as they will not only suffer lost revenue but may also have to discard unused food,” said Bonnette.

“That’s why I am committed to ordering in from a local eatery a few times a week. I encourage families (for those who can afford it) to adopt a similar routine — perhaps ‘Takeout Tuesdays’ — so as to support our local eating establishments.”

The Town of Halton Hills has over 100 restaurants, many of which have been providing curbside pick-up or delivery options for customers.

The Town also continues to implement an Economic Recovery and Resiliency Action Plan which includes actions to support recovery efforts.

Additionally, it supports investment growth actions to help sustain economic growth.
