The Town of Minto strongly urges residents to continue taking steps to help slow the spread of COVID-19. All residents should continue to follow the recommendations to keep a distance of 2 metres from anyone other than your immediate family that you live with.

Avoid crowded places, cancel social events, and only go out for essential needs once a week. Avoid contact with people at a higher risk such as older adults, those with compromised immune systems and those in poor health. Stay home as much as possible. It is critical that everyone continues to follow these measures to keep our great community safe. Minto is a resilient community and will get through this unusual time stronger together.
