Update: April 11, 2020
To help stop the spread of COVID-19 and protect the health and safety of people across the province, the Ontario government has extended emergency orders that have been put in place to-date until April 23, 2020, including the closure of outdoor amenities in parks and recreational areas, non-essential workplaces, public places and bars and restaurants, along with restrictions on social gatherings and the prohibition of price gouging. In addition, new measures have been introduced to address surge capacity in retirement homes, restrict recreational camping on Crown land, and allow the repurposing of existing buildings and temporary structures.
Provincial State of Emergency extended to Monday April 13, 2020
The Province has extended the new order which now closes all communal or shared, public or private, outdoor recreational amenities in Ontario. These include playgrounds, sports fields, basketball and tennis courts, off-leash dog parks, beaches, skateboard and BMX parks, picnic areas, outdoor community gardens, park shelters, outdoor exercise equipment, condo parks and gardens, and other outdoor recreational amenities. Ontario’s provincial parks and conservation reserves remain closed.
Therefore the Township of Red Rock Recreation Centre, Fitness Centre, Interpretive Centre, Marina, Board Walk, Tennis Court, Playgrounds, Sports Fields and Public Library are closed to the public.
The Marina Road and Boardwalk are among the list of places closed to the public. Hiking trails such as Lloyd’s Lookout and the Red Rock Mountain Trail remain open, although a 6 foot distance MUST be kept at all times while on these trails.
Municipal Office, Public Works and Fire Department are closed to the public but are still operating.
We all need to work together and do our part to stop COVID-19 by staying home and practicing social distancing.
