·1 min read

East Elgin Community Complex remains the designated emergency evacuation location for Aylmer residents, despite being closed for programming as a result of the province-wide lockdown.

In the event of an imminent threat to people or property, local residents could escape to the Complex for shelter. The facility is currently closed under non-emergency circumstances from Saturday, Dec. 26, 2020 until Friday, Jan. 22, 2021.

All COVID-19 health and safety protocols would apply, including mandatory face coverings, physical distancing, and limited capacity in the building.

If more shelter space was required, town staff would request assistance from neighbouring municipalities and Elgin County.
