City of Corner Brook Entering Business Continuity Transition

City of Corner Brook
Media Advisory

The COVID-19 situation has been developing rapidly, with new information and advice released daily.

Keeping in line with our commitment to the health and safety of our employees and City residents, the City of Corner Brook will be entering into a Business Continuity transition effective tomorrow (Wednesday, March 18).

Employees will be sent home with the exception of Core Services Staff.

The following services will continue with minimal disruption.

  • Snow-clearing services.
  • Water and Sewer operations.
  • Garbage collection.
  • Transit services.
  • Fire Protection Services.
  • Our Customer Service Line will continue to answer calls at 637-1500. Other concerns can be forwarded to 637-1666.
  • Tax Payments can be sent by mail, through telephone banking, online banking, or by preauthorized payments.

As per recommendations from the Chief Medical Officer, residents are advised to stay at home first and foremost. This means shopping outside of peak hours and practicing social-distancing when in public.

Given the fluid nature of these past few weeks, some of these measures could change at any time. The City of Corner Brook will continue to keep residents informed through the City website as well as through our social media channels: Twitter and Facebook.

The Mayor and Director of Protective Services will hold a media availability tomorrow morning at 10:30 a.m. in the lobby of City Hall. Media are asked to check in with the Communications Officer to confirm attendance ahead of time.
