Huron Perth Public Health permits restaurant to re-open

After completing a public health investigation, Huron Perth Public Health is permitting Anna Mae’s Bakery and Restaurant to re-open.

Last week, a positive case of COVID-19 associated with the restaurant was identified. Information at the time indicated that the risk to the public was low. As a precaution the restaurant was temporarily closed.

The operator has met HPPH criteria for re-opening and is now permitted to do so.

 “We appreciate the support of the restaurant operator during our investigation,” says Dr. Miriam Klassen, Medical Officer of Health.

“The safety of our employees and guests is of utmost importance to us,” says Amanda Herrfort, owner of Anna Mae’s. “We have worked closely with public health and are pleased to be able to welcome our guests once more.”

Those who visited the restaurant prior to its temporary closure do not need to take any action.


Because COVID-19 is circulating across Huron-Perth, all residents of both counties are encouraged to do the following:

  • If you experience symptoms of COVID-19, self-isolate and arrange for testing.
  • Wash your hands regularly and thoroughly.
  • Maintain physical distance of 6 feet/2 metres from anyone not in your social circle.
  • Wear a non-medical cloth face covering in indoor public spaces and in settings where physical distancing cannot be maintained.
