March 27th, 2020 – Temporary Closure of Play Structures at All LaSalle Parks

The Town of LaSalle has posted the following on the Town of LaSalle Webpage and Social Media.
Temporary Closure of Play Structures at All LaSalle Parks
In a continued effort to reduce the spread of COVID-19, the Town of LaSalle is closing all playground equipment located within the parks. The play structures are closed immediately until further notice. The play structures are not sanitized and therefore provide an opportunity for transmission of COVID-19 between users. In addition, the skateboard park at the Vollmer Complex, pickleball courts, tennis courts and basketball courts are closed.
The parks and trails remain open and physical activity is encouraged, however, the public is reminded to use caution in these areas and allow for the recommended social distancing. Please do not gather in groups or use the pavilions.
The Windsor Essex County Health Unit, along with federal and provincial health authorities, continue to remind residents to avoid congregating in groups, keep a 2 metre physical distance from others, wash hands often and to stay home if sick. Any trips away from home should be done for essential needs only. For the most up-to-date and accurate information on COVID-19, visit the Windsor-Essex County Health Unit; Health Canada; and the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long Term Care.
Temporary Suspension of Transit Service
In response to COVID-19, LaSalle Transit Service will be suspended beginning on Monday, March 30 until at least Monday, April 13. As part of the City of Windsor’s ongoing response to COVID-19, Mayor Drew Dilkens ordered the temporary suspension of Transit Windsor operations, effective the end of normal operating hours on Sunday, March 29, 2020. This affects operation of LaSalle Transit Route 25. The suspension of operations will last at least until Monday, April 13, 2020.
This action represents a precautionary measure to help safeguard the health and well-being of transit riders and operators alike, and to further help lower the risk of community infection.
Transit operations will continue this weekend to ensure that those residents who were planning to use public transit to acquire essential goods can continue to rely on this service. Enhanced cleaning measures have been in place for several weeks and will continue in the days ahead.
