Covid-19 Policy

Huronia Historical Parks (HHP) is committed to providing and maintaining a safe and healthy working environment for all staff, visitors and contractors and has implemented enhanced health and safety measures that follow government and regional health unit rules and guidelines.

These measures include:

  • Physical distancing (2 meters/6 feet)
  • Wearing of mask or face covering (2 years +)
  • Reduced visitor capacity
  • Hand sanitizing stations
  • Increased frequency of cleaning high-traffic areas (bathrooms, handrails and door handles)
  • Contact tracing
  • Self-assessment


People can lower the risk of COVID-19 by usual, preventative practices that include:

  • Cover you nose and mouth when you cough or sneeze by using a tissue or coughing into your sleeve or elbow; dispose of the tissue immediately into a garbage can;
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after you cough or sneeze; alcohol-based hand rub/sanitizer with 60 - 90% alcohol is also effective;
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth, germs spread easily that way;
  • Do not share objects that have been in other people’s mouths, ie. drinks, water bottles; lip products, etc;
  • If you develop even a mild cough or low-grade fever (i.e. temperature of 37.3 C or more) they should stay at home and self isolate. This means avoiding close contact (less than 2 meters) with other people, including family members. They should also call their health care provider or the local public health department;
  • If your symptoms worsen, contact your doctor.

Sainte-Marie among the Hurons and Discovery Harbour have been awarded the #SafeTravels Stamp. The Safe Travels Stamp is an international symbol designed to allow travellers to recognize governments and companies around the world, which have adopted health and hygiene, standardized protocols – so consumers can experience “Safe Travels”.
