​Impacted City Services

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, the City has worked closely with the Simcoe-Muskoka District Health Unit (SMDHU) and other community partners to monitor the global situation and respond accordingly.

The City’s business continuity plans ensure ​essential City services that citizens rely on every day are delivered consistently. Throughout the pandemic, the City's Emergency Control Group met regularly as required. The group includes senior leadership from various departments across the City including Fire and Police, and regularly consults with the SMDHU.

There are currently no significant impacts to City services resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic, except for Transit Services. Barrie Transit has ongoing service frequency reductions, and masks are required on buses and within the transit terminal until June 11, 2022. Please visit for full information.

A gradual introduction of in-person attendance by members of the public for City Council, General Committee, and Planning Committee meetings is anticipated to start in May, with a full public return in June, 2022. Details will be posted at
