SWOX - Ontario Nature is reopening all of their Nature Reserves and trail systems, including the Lawson Tract in South-West Oxford.
The trails had been closed as a response ot the COVID-19 pandemic. In a statement on their web site Ontario Nature explains why they are re-opening the trails and reserves.
"We know that getting outdoors to connect with nature is a critical element of your physical and mental well-being, especially at times like these as we grapple with COVID-19.
Please visit only trails in your local area and only with members of your household. Maintain a distance of at least two metres from others and keep your dog on a leash at all times. Please do not touch any railings, signs or other surfaces.
We are assessing trails and will resume maintenance when we are permitted to do so. Use of our trails is at your own risk."
Everyone is still asked to follow the advice of health and government officials while enjoying the trails.
