Medical officer Dr. Jim Chirico is reopening outdoor recreation in the area. Despite the region’s lockdown being extended, the region’s top doctor has decided to cautiously reopen tobogganing hills, skating rinks and snowmobile trails. He says the following of public health measures will be monitored closely, and the facilities will be closed again if the rules are not followed. This comes into effect on Monday.
“I believe that our district has done an excellent job in supporting each other,” said Dr. Chirico Friday afternoon. “Both in public health measures, keeping each other safe and by supporting our local businesses. We’ve come so far, made many sacrifices. But we have to hang on a little longer. So lets continue these efforts by staying home, staying safe, and saving lives.”
