“We have been encouraging physical distancing measures at parks, trails and other public spaces, however we are still seeing people disregard this advice. They are putting themselves and others at risk of contracting this virus and we need to respond accordingly."
The following recreational facilities are now closed to the public.
- Dave Johnson Memorial Dog Park
- J.L. Scott McLean Outdoor Rec Pad

Molnar adds that signs reminding people to stay at least 2 metres from others are also being installed at key locations along trails and in parks.
“We aren't discouraging people from being outside at this point. We are discouraging them from congregating in groups and putting themselves and others at risk. We are urging them to follow the instructions of Southwestern Public Health.”
