The City of Kenora remains diligent in monitoring the COVID-19 situation. We continue to evaluate and follow all public health agency communications, as well as communications from Federal and Provincial Government health authorities. The health and well-being of our residents is of great importance.

The City has reviewed the amended Provincial Emergency Order of May 19, 2020 about re-opening outdoor recreational amenities with specific restrictions. Based on this information, the City has reopened the following:

• Benches and picnic tables in all areas;

• All municipal ball diamonds; however, organized baseball is still not permitted for groups larger than five (5) people. Dugouts will remain closed.

While using these outdoor recreational amenities, you must maintain physical distancing of at least two (2) metres from any other person, unless you are from the same household. Washroom facilities at some outdoor facilities will begin to be opened May 25th, and we encourage you to ensure you carry hand sanitizer.
