As COVID-19 continues to circulate in the community, residents visiting a beach or park must practise physical distancing and avoid crowding. Torontonians are reminded to respect parks and beaches for the enjoyment of all. Bonfires, littering and parties involving excessive alcohol are not permitted. If a litter bin is full, residents are asked to take their garbage with them so it can be disposed of properly. Barbecues and hibachi grills are not allowed on beaches.
Provincial Emergency Management and Civil Protection Act orders and the City bylaw on physical distancing remain in effect. Yesterday, the City received 78 complaints related to parks use and physical distancing. Officers have cautioned more than 3,700 people this month about physical distancing, alcohol, bonfires and littering bylaws.
