Trinity Bellwoods Is Getting Those Social Distancing Circles Back Again

The city wants residents to stick to their local parks though.

The City of Toronto has announced that it will be bringing back its painted social distancing circles at Trinity Bellwoods Park to allow people to safely get outdoors.

The initiative, which is scheduled to begin next week, will help residents living in apartments and condos to get fresh air and exercise during Ontario's stay-at-home order.

"We continue to work to give people safe outdoor spaces to get outside for fresh air and exercise during the pandemic. We know Trinity Bellwoods is a popular park so we're proactively putting the circles in place this year to help ensure we're encouraging people to be safe," Mayor John Tory said.

The City installed similar circles last year after crowds of people swarmed the park over Victoria Day weekend.

Currently, the province's lockdown restrictions only allow people to leave their homes for essential reasons, including groceries, medical appointments and exercise. You are not allowed to gather outdoors with anyone who isn't in your household.
