Yard Access to Open Up Once Lockdown is Lifted

With the Province’s announcement this week, we are closer to moving out of lockdown and the current stay-at-home order is tentatively set to be lifted for Hamilton on February 16. We are making the preparations now to reopen the yard to customers and service providers so that once lockdown eases we can provide a safe and easy transition.

We will require that anyone entering the yard to sign a COVID-19 Screening Form. It will be the responsibility of anyone coming onsite to self-monitor before each visit to ensure they pass each of the screening requirements. This includes showing no signs/symptoms of COVID-19, not travelling outside of Canada in the past 14 days, and having no contact with a confirmed or probable case of COVID-19.

Before you can enter the yard
Please review the COVID Screening Form, sign it, and return a copy to our marina office: https://www.harbourwest.ca/wp-content/uploads/2021/02/200210-COVID-SCREENING-FORM.pdf

Your gate cards will be activated by marina staff once a completed form has been received. Received forms will be processed during business hours of Monday to Friday, 8am to 4pm.

When you are in the yard
Visitors will be required to follow all of the COVID safety precautions including…

  • Keeping a distance of 6 ft (2 m) away from others – do not meet in groups or congregate in the same area.
  • Keep your mask on in public areas, and sanitize your hands often.
  • You may remove your mask once you are aboard your vessel.
  • Head directly to your vessel upon entering and when your check/work is complete, exit the yard to allow others the opportunity to enter.

Access hours will be set from 8am to 8pm, Monday to Sunday—once the provincial government officially moves Hamilton out of the lockdown framework.

As a reminder, we strongly recommend that you only visit the yard if it is absolutely necessary at this point. We want to keep all of our customers safe and healthy, and do our part to curb the spread of COVID-19 so that we can look forward to a more normal start to our boating season!

We thank you so much for working with us through this lockdown and your continued cooperation as we get through this together. Please stay well and feel free to check in with us at 905-525-3622 or by email via info@harbourwest.ca if you have any questions.
