Beaches, Playgrounds, Parks and Public Washrooms Will Re-open June 12.

Hand sanitizer will be supplied in the public washrooms. All other public areas are to be used at your own risk.

Please be advised the Beaches and Playgrounds are unstaffed. 

The information below provides information for beaches in Saskatchewan as per Sask Health Authority.

  *   People exhibiting signs of illness should not enter beach areas.
  *   Individuals from different groups must maintain a physical distance of two
metres outdoors, indoors, on the beach and in the water. Towels and beach gear
should be set up with four metres between groups to allow physical distancing to
be maintained for those entering or exiting the area.
  *   There must be no more individuals per group than allowed under the private and
public gathering restrictions.  Presently it is at 30 persons.
  *   Towels, beach toys, food and other items should not be shared between members
of different groups.
  *   If the beach area is full, please use adjacent grass areas, where available,
to ensure group and individual physical distancing is maintained.
  *   Bring your own picnic table covers, cleaning supplies, hand hygiene supplies
and other personal items.
  *   For unstaffed beaches, it's recommended that users clean
and disinfect surfaces before and after using (e.g. picnic tables), and practice
frequent hand hygiene, especially before and after consuming food.
  *   Frequently wash your hands with soap and water or use an alcohol-based hand
sanitizer approved by Health Canada (DIN or NPN number) if you come into contact
with public or common touch surfaces (e.g. washroom facilities, shower taps,
benches, tables, playground equipment).
 
  * If an area is busy, such as a picnic shelter or beach, come back when it's not busy or use another area.
