FORT ERIE (February 3, 2021) The Province of Ontario’s stay-at-home order and declaration of a second provincial emergency is in effect until at least February 9. Within the order, the Province allows for outdoor exercise while maintaining a physical distance from others.
The Town is reminding all residents to stay off of stormwater ponds and enjoy ice skating on frozen surfaces that they know are safe. Stormwater ponds are hazardous due to the regular movement of water creating an unpredictable ice thickness.
Outdoor activities such as tobogganing, cross-country skiing and ice fishing are also allowed under the current Provincial orders.
When out in public, including getting exercise, residents are reminded to follow public health guidelines and provincial orders around gatherings, physical distancing from anyone outside of your household, and mask usage.
