It is the Thanksgiving long weekend and even though for many people their traditional thanksgiving dinners have had to be cancelled, that doesn’t mean the focus on family has been removed from the weekend. It’s still a long weekend where people can spend time reflecting on the year and finding what to be thankful for.
And it is a Holiday, that means there are some changes to schedules on Monday.
Expect government offices to be closed even if they have been opened, though most haven’t.
Canada Post will be closed.
Most banks will be closed.
Most transit will be operating on a holiday or Sunday schedule.
GO Transit will be running on a Sunday schedule on Monday.
Grand River Transit will be operating on a Sunday Schedule on Monday, October 12.
The HSR will operate on a Sunday/holiday schedule on Oct. 12.
DARTS will be following holiday service hours on Monday.
Library locations will be closed.
Garbage and Recycling curbside pickup will occur as normal in most locations, Hamilton is an exception where collection won’t happen on Monday and the schedule will be pushed back by a day.
Most landfill locations will be closed for residential drop off.
Also closed are going to be Malls.
Most Beer Store locations will be closed.
Many Grocery stores will also be closed.
While many things have been previously closed during the COVID-19 pandemic, at this point much is normally open. But given the holiday you may want to be sure before you go out of your way to try and visit any location. Just call ahead to check if they are open.
