SOUTH GLENGARRY, Ontario – The Township of South Glengarry announced on Sunday, Dec. 26 that all of the municipality’s recreational facilities would be closed.
“Throughout the pandemic, the Township has continued to follow the protocols from the Province and Eastern Ontario Health Unit (EOHU), but for the safety of staff and the community, it is important that the Township closes these facilities for the time being,” reads a statement from the Township. “The Township website and social media will be updated if the re-opening date changes. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and we thank you for your understanding.”
This comes less than a week after the City of Cornwall made a similar announcement.
