The City of Windsor will be handing out more free hand sanitizer to the general public next week.

Having entered Stage 3 of the Province of Ontario’s re-opening framework, the city has planned for distribution at three separate municipal locations and allow for a walk-up format.

“Since the start of this crisis, the City of Windsor has partnered with our hometown distillery to make locally produced hand sanitizer available for residents seeking to stay healthy and safe,” said Windsor Mayor Drew Dilkens. “Now that our region has entered Stage 3, it’s more important than ever to keep up on our public health recommendations.”
