COVID-19 Municipal Update
The Town of Conception Bay South remains committed to public safety, and continues to take measures to support the Provincial Government’s public health advice for COVID-19. As the province has now entered Alert Level 2, we appreciate the patience and cooperation of our residents as we prepare to safely re-open facilities.

- When visiting the Town Hall, after a screening process, residents may be placed in a waiting area. This is to ensure only a limited number of occupants are in the building at a time, so proper social distancing requirements can be maintained.
