Municipality of Bayham

Be Smart - Stay Apart

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, Southwestern Public Health and the Municipality of Bayham urges residents to practice physical distancing to stop the spread of the virus. 


Although the Municipality of Bayham is hopeful everyone will voluntarily comply with Provincial Orders and directions the Municipality of Bayham provides the following information for enforcement:

  • Persons can report violations to the OPP through two mechanisms:
    1. 1-888-310-1122
    2. Citizen Reporting Portal
  • The Municipal By-law Enforcement Contractor is conducting patrols of the Municipality for compliance with Provincial Orders.

The County of Elgin is urging all residents and cottagers to avoid any non-essential travel, including heading to rural cottages and seasonal/secondary residences such as condominiums and trailer parks. The County of Elgin recognizes that while people might like to socially distance themselves at their cottage and/or seasonal residence during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, now is not the right time. Non-residents of Elgin, who are usually welcome in Elgin County, are being asked during this time to refrain from staying at their seasonal home and to consider the impacts a higher, unexpected presence can have on rural populations.
