Toronto Just Had To Close 2 CampTO Sites After A Camper Caught COVID-19
They will reopen after deep cleaning on August 16.
The City of Toronto has just announced that it's had to close two community centres after health authorities discovered a COVID-19 case in a CampTO participant. The announcement was made in a release by the City on Wednesday, August 12.
Both the Barbara Frum Community Centre, which hosted the infected camper, and the Glen Long Community centres will be temporarily closed as a result. The camper was sent home last week with symptoms and has been self-isolating since.
