MUSKOKA IS OPEN FOR BUSINESS
Please plan ahead and contact any businesses for updated services and hours.
Businesses are open to customers and have enhanced their sanitization and cleaning procedures to keep you safe. Anyone entering a commercial business must wear a face mask in the District of Muskoka. You may also be required to provide your name and contact information for potential contact tracing in the future. Commercial businesses include any place that is open to the public and offer goods and/or services for sale, such as retail stores, convenience stores, malls and plazas, restaurants, personal service settings, grocery stores and bakeries, gas stations, farmers’ markets, mechanic shops, and car dealerships. Those entering and not wearing a mask may be declined service and asked to leave the premises.
GET IT TO GO!
Many businesses in Muskoka, including food & drink establishments, are offering online and curbside pick-up shopping options to help minimize potential exposure. If you plan to dine or shop indoors, considering checking the establishment’s website or social media platforms or contacting the business directly, to ensure that indoor dining or shopping is currently offered.
