Information Update Regarding COVID-19 Pandemic

(Prescott) The Municipal Emergency Control Group (MECG) met virtually today to review and discuss new information updates, including the shift into Phase II of the “Reopening Ontario” framework.

Please note that with the gradual reopening of some municipal amenities on Friday, June 12 (picnic tables and the Kiwanis Skate Park to non-vehicular traffic) and Tuesday, June 16 (gazebos and covered areas, Kelly’s Beach) comes a personal responsibility of users to adhere to all public health recommendations. Remain 2 metres apart from others outside your household, wear a cotton face covering where the physical distance cannot be maintained, sanitize hands before and after touching shared surfaces, avoid social gatherings of more than 10 people, and stay home if you are sick..

There are no washrooms or changerooms available for public use. The Kinsmen Amphitheatre remains unavailable for private rental at this time. Prescott Scuba Park and dive entry ramp are under consideration for opening, in consultation with neighbouring municipalities with dive sites. The Centennial Park Splash Pad will remain an active construction site for several weeks to come. Please refrain from this area for safety reasons. All playgrounds and play equipment remain closed for public use.

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we work together to fight this deadly disease. We are all in this together.
