NOTICE: Municipality to allow access to boat launches

The County of Prince Edward is allowing public access to municipal boat launches.

The municipality continues to monitor conditions, given the COVID-19 outbreak and high water levels on Lake Ontario, and will make adjustments in the future if necessary.  

Signs have been installed at the boat launch sites informing the public to:

• Stay in their vehicles when waiting to launch
• Avoid congregating
• Maintain physical distancing of 2 m/6 ft at all times

County by-law enforcement will be monitoring the boat launches to ensure compliance with the provincial regulation prohibiting social gatherings of more than five people.

To avoid damage due to high water and wave action, the municipality is not installing docks for public use at this time. Docks will be in place at the Wellington boat launch to support emergency vessels only.

Up to date information on The County’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic is posted on the County website. Information about flooding can be on the County’s flood watch webpage.
