Because it does now more than ever. 
  • Mayor Reynard and Council are pleased to acknowledge that as of this morning there are no known COVID-19 cases in Kenora. We believe this is due to the great response we have observed from the citizens of Kenora, and their adherence to the protocols that have been put in place related to social distancing and self-isolation.

We appreciate citizens are concerned during these uncertain times, and we are all adapting rapidly as the information surrounding this virus and the various levels of government enact changes to help us reduce its spread. We are following the direction of the Northwestern Health Unit, as well as the Governments of Ontario and Canada, on protocols and necessary precautions. We encourage you to follow social media for important announcements and messages from these levels, and share with those who do not have internet access.

As leaders, we have had to make significant adaptations to adhere to these recommendations by closing public spaces and altering service delivery in some areas. The City remains committed to maintaining as much of our “normal” activities and services as we are able, for as long as we are able. Maintaining this continuity of service provides stability and a sense of normalcy to both the public and our staff, during these uncertain times. Notwithstanding, we ask that if you see staff on the street, for example, maintaining roads, sidewalks, or ensuring parking regulations are being followed, please ensure you are socially distancing yourself from these staff. We also ask that you appreciate that we are operating with reduced staff. As is normal for staff this time of year, many took vacations during March and this has resulted in numerous staff off on self-isolation. As such, we ask for your patience in regard to routine maintenance, such as potholes. Our staff are working hard to address these issues, but delays in service should be expected. ➡️ Read the full Statement of Circumstances on Kenora.ca

  • That’s better! Blue skies and sunshine here today.  Perfect for a stroll around the block.  #cityofkenora #getoutside
  • Walking along the ‘green’ belt,  the sky is as grey as the snow now.  The snow sculptures look a little melted, though we haven’t had plus temps since the winter carnival.  Winter seems to be hanging on just enough to keep the chill in the air, the snow on the ground, and the ice on the lake.  This could be an opportunity for all of us.  We are fortunate to have fresh air and the outdoors to enjoy during this time of social distancing and finding ways to keep busy while most places/services are not available.
Outdoor activities have proven to lower stress and anxiety, and improve overall health. 
What will you and your family do to enjoy the outdoors over the next few weeks?
