County enforcing closure of all outdoor recreational amenities with $750 fines

County bylaw enforcement officers will be monitoring recreational facilities and enforcing limits of public gatherings to fewer than five people.

The fine for failing to comply with the provincial order is $750. Failing to give the by-law enforcement officer your name is considered obstruction and carries a fine of $1,000.

The province issued an emergency order March 30 under the Emergency Management and Civil Protection Act to close all outdoor recreational amenities. This includes, but is not limited to playgrounds, sports fields, basketball and tennis courts, off-leash dog parks, benches, skateboard parks, picnic areas, and beaches.

Green spaces that you can walk through such as trails, shoreline and boardwalk areas remain open for walkthrough access provided that individuals maintain the safe physical distance of at least two metres apart from others.

The County has posted signs and barricaded where possible all outdoor recreational amenities.

Walking along the Millennium Trail and the waterfront at the Wellington Beach is permitted but congregating on the beach is not allowed and fines will be issued.
