Coronavirus: Penticton, Summerland close access to playgrounds, outdoor sports facilities

Calling it a matter of public health, the District of Summerland says it will be closing access to several municipal playgrounds and outdoor sports facilities.

The closures will start Tuesday, March 24, at noon, and will remain in place until further notice, the district said in a press release.

The district said the closures are a response to the novel coronavirus pandemic, and how some are choosing to ignore social distancing.

Also Tuesday, the City of Penticton announced that it has now closed all of its playgrounds and outdoor sports facilities and dog parks to help battle the spread of COVID-19.
