City called to investigate crowds at toboggan hills in Mississauga
With snowy weather comes fun winter activities — but there were some concerns that a few residents weren’t following the social distancing guidelines currently in place.
City staff was called to investigate crowds of people at the toboggan hills in Birchwood Park, located on Lakeshore Road West in Clarkson.
However, the city says there were no issues.
“We received mutliple reports of crowds at a couple of toboggan hills,” the city said in a statement.
“Our security staff attended and patrolled on foot and found no more than 10 people in any one group and those in groups were from the same household.”
No fines or charges were issued as a result.
Under the current province-wide lockdown restrictions, outdoors gatherings are limited to 10 people and must comply with physical distancing rules, the province says.
Face coverings must be worn whenever physical distancing isn’t possible.
