The Vancouver Park Board is closing its playgrounds across the city and reminding Vancouverites about the importance of social distancing when visiting parks and beaches during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Playgrounds are being closed in an effort to minimize public gatherings and the potential of risk to the community.
Parks board general manager Malcolm Bromley said all playgrounds are off-limits, but parks and beaches can stay open.
The Park Board and City of Vancouver continue to work with public health officials and multiple partners on the COVID-19 response.
