Sauble Beach re-opened yesterday, July 3rd, in the middle of a heat wave.
It appeared as though most people were observing social-distancing however, for some in the water, it was difficult. Under Public Health guidelines, social distancing of two metres must be observed and group numbers are set at 10 people unless from the same household.
In May, Grey Bruce Public Health issued an order to close all beaches prior to the Victoria Day holiday weekend, however rescinded the order in June, leaving it to municipalities to make decisions regarding their area beaches.
South Bruce Peninsula Council however, made the decision on June 22nd, to close the area’s beaches prior to Canada Day and only re-opened them on Friday, July 3rd, after a special meeting of Council.
