Sam G started this petition to Haldimand norfolk health unit

Cottage owners who do not reside in Halidmand  are being prevented  access  to occupy their seasonal residence.  Many have necessary maintenance  to complete that can take several days at a time and are being told they cannot sleep there while they are completing  it. These cottage  owners  have paid large amounts  of property tax and have ongoing fixed  expenses such as property insurance, hydro, telephone. Some are retired folks who stay there in summer to relieve health symtoms as their cottages are more accessible then their primary homes being one floor cottages. There are safe ways  for them to access their  cottages such  as bringing supplies and purchasing  gasoline from their home city. They can occupy  their seasonal residences without putting anyone at risk. The properties are large and they can remain in their cottages  and on the property  and practice safe social distancing as they do at their primary residence. These cottages  are a  livelihood for some and some owners  have very few summers left in their life where  they can enjoy their  cottages. The Halidmand Norfolk Health unit should  lift this order banning cottage owners from occupying their own cottages. It has been in place since  April 23.2020. Many cottage owners  need to occupy to clean  up their cottages that are faced with flooding, downed trees and usual things they  are faced with when opening up in the spring.  The chief medical officer of Ontario has consulted with the Public  health Measures Table and they concluded  section 22 orders are not necessary in this situation and that communication with the public discouraging use is all that is needed. Seasonal cottage  owners should have not had such orders places upon as such.
