It looks like your picnic might be a bit different this summer. After a busy weekend at Trinity Bellwoods, the City has painted white circles all over the park to help ensure that people are keeping their distance while visiting the area. On Thursday morning, photos of the new initiative started to appear on social media and these Trinity Bellwoods circles will now be the new norm when visiting.\nOn Wednesday, Mayor John Tory announced that these new painted shapes would be implemented at the park after thousands were caught gathering in the area over the weekend.\nPhotos appeared on social media showing crowds of people not practicing social distancing, and some were even reported to have used people's front lawns as restrooms.\nNow, these circles will ensure that the number of people in the park is limited and that those visiting stay two metres apart.\n"Park staff will be in Trinity Bellwoods Park tomorrow painting circles on the grass of that park which will both help to illustrate proper physical distancing and the measurements but also help to ensure with compliance in a place where we simply have to do better," Tory said.\n#TrinityBellwoods pic.twitter.com/dXUM7VUwY5— WPS (@warrenpsonoda) May 28, 2020\nTrinity Bellwoods now. The circle is small. Gordon Lightfoot once wrote about this. Although I might have misinterpreted the meaning of his song. I quite like the rerecord, better than the original. pic.twitter.com/QI3AGcCEWS— R Billinton (@RBillinton) May 28, 2020\nFinally! Some social distancing circles in Trinity Bellwoods Park! Citizens in #Toronto need clear communication and direct public policy to beat COVID. 🙏🙏🙏cc'ing @JohnTory @joe_cressy @m_layton @kristynwongtam pic.twitter.com/f6LD6f4oy5— Ben Bergen (@Ben_Bergen) May 28, 2020\nThe circles that are scattered throughout the park offer a satisfying perspective on how far away you should stand to maintain the proper physical distance.\nThe circles have been used in other cities such as San Francisco and New York.\nThe new additions to Trinity Bellwoods look just like the ones in the Big Apple:\nView this post on Instagram New Normal? Essa foto é no Domino Park onde os oficiais da cidade demarcaram o distanciamento social. Isso me da um alivio e uma agonia ao mesmo tempo. Alivio por ver as pessoas ao ar livre, mas agonia pela incerteza de como sera nossa vida daqui pra frente. O que vocês acham? 🥺🤷🏼♀️ (ph: @megrunsalot) A post shared by NYCTips (@nyctips_) on May 16, 2020 at 5:38am PDT\nView this post on Instagram Cada um no seu 🔲, OPS, círculo. Vista da pausinha na minha corrida hoje de manhã – a primeira em 3 meses! Que gostoso poder dizer que isso não é um #tbt 😌 . 📍Esse aí é o @dominopark, um dos meus favoritos aqui em Williamsburg. Há algumas semanas eles implementaram uma série de medidas para o uso seguro do parque, entre elas esses círculos no chão para ajudar os frequentadores a manter o #distanciamentosocial A post shared by Vai dar tempo 🔆 Louise Peres (@vaidartempo) on May 28, 2020 at 8:00am PDT\nHowever, there has been no mention of whether these circles will be appearing across the 6ix over the next few weeks.\nAlthough Trinity Bellwoods was hectic over the weekend, other areas of the city seemed to have done a pretty good job of keeping their distance.\nWhile the City aims to reopen and establish a new normal, it looks like safety measures will be in place for a while.\nIn fact, Ontario just extended the emergency orders once again into next month.
