Wainfleet warning that playgrounds are not disinfected


A reminder from Wainfleet that playground equipment is not disinfected against COVID-19.

The township says while playgrounds remain open, outdoor play equipment and spaces are not being disinfected and cannot be guaranteed virus-free.

Officials in Wainfleet also only performing 'essential interments' right now at the township's cemetery.

They are selling plots only for essential purposes until further notice, and there is a limit of 2 family members to attend during the sale of plots for a funeral service.

Only immediate family members are being asked to attend the ceremony.

Effective March 12, 2020, the Ontario Government declared a State of Emergency and advised that all large gatherings must be restricted to 50 persons or less.

Wainfleet says it will be strictly enforcing the measure and will be implementing a "safe distance protocol" for employees and the public.
