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. 

 Assumption of Risk
The Town of Aurora continues to monitor the COVID-19 Pandemic and follows Provincial Orders and best practices and guidelines set out by Public Health authorities.

Users of Town of Aurora parks and facilities are reminded that these areas are available for use at your own risk and cannot be sanitized at all times. An inherent risk of exposure to communicable diseases, including COVID-19 exists in any public place where people are present.

By visiting or using the Town’s parks and publicly accessible spaces, you voluntarily assume all risks including any risk of injury, loss, damage and possible exposure to a communicable disease, including COVID-19.

We remind you to follow the COVID-19 Provincial Orders and precautionary guidelines being recommending by various Canadian health authorities, including the Region of York, Ontario Public Health and the Public Health Agency of Canada.


The Province of Ontario will move into Step 3 of the Reopening Ontario plan on Friday, July 16. Find out what's permitted under Step 3 at Reopening Ontario.
