“Walk to Exercise, Not Socialize”
Walking, running and biking are great tools to maintain physical and mental health while social distancing. Those who choose to walk, run or bike on the trails must comply with the following provincial restrictions:
- Practice social distancing by limiting contact with other people – stay about 2 metres (6 feet) apart.
- Limit gatherings to no more than 5 people. Groups should be made up of individuals from the same household.
- If you do not live within walking distance to the trails do not drive to them. Exercise in your neighbourhood instead.
Residents should not be driving to use the Landing Trail. If the RCMP continue to see vehicle traffic at the Landing, they will start ticketing vehicles who are not complying with the Health Protection Act.
The Town of Antigonish and the Municipality of the County of Antigonish remind residents that it is critical that we take these measures to protect the community. Please follow the strict directions from the Premier of Nova Scotia and Chief Medical Officer Dr. Strang to walk, run or bike around your own neighbourhood for exercise not socialization.
Failure to follow these directions could result in closure of the Landing Trail.
