CHANGE: Bruce Power to host Telephone Town Hall with Grey-Bruce health officials COVID-19 pandemic

Since the announcement of Bruce Power to host a Telephone Town Hall on Thursday evening with health officials from Grey Bruce to provide residents with the latest information on the COVID-19 pandemic, there has been significant interest from across the Region. Additionally, Canada is experiencing significant strain on telecommunications systems due to heavier use.

To ensure as many people as possible can participate and we do not increase these telecommunications challenges there will be two ways to participate tomorrow:

1. A large number of Bruce and Grey county residents will receive a phone call invitation just before the scheduled 6:45 p.m. start of the Virtual Town Hall. The Virtual Town Hall will run from 6:45-7:30 p.m.

2. For those that do not receive a call the Virtual Town Hall will be available on the Bruce Power website at starting at 8 p.m.

A full recording of the call will also be shared on social media channels for people to listen to at their convenience or share.

WHEN: Thursday, March 19th
