The Peace River Regional District says it will reopen day-use areas at four regional and community parks this weekend.
Montney Centennial Regional Park will open first on Thursday, May 14, followed by Iver Johnson Community Park on Friday, May 15. By the weekend, residents will be able to visit day-use parks at Sundance and Spencer Tuck parks, the regional district says.
Visitors are asked to stay at least six feet away from others, and to regularly wash or sanitize their hands, to prevent the spread of the virus that causes the COVID-19 respiratory disease.
Overnight camping facilities at Montney remain closed, as well as at Blackfoot and Minaker River parks.
The regional district says it continues to monitor updates on the COVID-19 situation in B.C., and looks forward to reopening other regional park campgrounds in the near future.
