The Covent Garden Market, in collaboration with the Middlesex Health Unit continues to monitor the COVID-19 situation closely.

The following set of guidelines have been put in place to mitigate the probability of COVID-19 transmission in the Covent Garden Market. The guide lines are a fluid document and will change as required if the province changes its rules or the Middlesex London Health Unit requirements change the directives.

The Market will always strive to stay ahead of the requirements and react to required changes as diligently as possible. The Market does not make changes with respect to COVID-19 without direction from MLHU.
