There is only one thing that matters to Burlington and every other community in the province. Stay at home.

“This webpage is fantastic” said the Mayor, “ as it acts as a one-stop shop for resources. We hope by having a single portal, this will be of tremendous value to our residents and non-profit organizations. I want to thank City staff for putting this together, and our members of the Burlington COVID-19 Task Force – this was their idea and their first take-away item that’s now being delivered. This is collaboration in action and the true spirit of the Task Force, our City and our community.”
