Real Life at the Mews
Issue 113, August 2020
Summer in Bayfield
It’s all about Community at The Bayfield Mews. We are a 55+ Community providing independent living for our residents. During this time of COVID-19, our Mews Recreation Association (MRA) is trying to organize some social activities around government guidelines.
In July we held a “Happy Hour” where 36 of our residents gathered on five patios to enjoy some beverages and some snacks and appetizers. In August, we are planning an outdoor musical evening with a band and a portable stage and our residents can gather on patios or on grass areas to enjoy the concert.
We at the Mews are all supporting each other and are recommending that all our residents strictly follow all of the guidelines from our Ontario Medical Officials and our Ontario Government to self-isolate at home, to gather in groups of 25 or less indoors or 50 or less outdoors, maintain a six-foot space between people and frequently wash hands or use hand sanitizer.
In the village of Bayfield, all kinds of activities have been organized by the businesses, restaurants and many of the community associations to assist citizens in any way to help them live within the virus constraints. All large social gatherings are still cancelled and will be until further notice in our area.
Some regular summer events have had to be creative in order to hold their events this year, i.e., The Annual Bayfield Community Fair will be produced virtually this year, our weekly Farmers’ Market is taking orders on line and customers pick up their orders at Clan Gregor Square in Bayfield on Friday afternoons.
All our restaurants in the village have opened up and expanded their patio areas and they are also still open for take-out orders. Most business on Main Street are open but are adhering to guidelines put out by our Ontario Medical Officials.
Please keep well and keep in touch with your family, friends and neighbours!
