Reopening Aurora is the Town of Aurora's plan for reopening municipal facilities and amenities and outlines the plan for a gradual, safe and measured reopening and restart of Town services and programs.

Aurora continues to take a cautious and responsible approach to reopening the Town and we ask all residents and visitors to use vigilance when visiting our facilities and amenities. Public health guidelines still apply according to the current Provincial Orders which include wearing a face mask and practicing physical distancing of at least two meters from non-household members.

Below you can find detailed information on what facilities and amenities are open and closed to the public.
