COVID-19 | An update from Sugarloaf Marina

Posted by Corporate Communications on Tuesday, April 7th, 2020

To our boating community,

Effective today, April 7, 2020, our public boat launch ramp is closed.

Although the ramp was closed due to winter operation until April 15, 2020, the public ramp, in addition to Sugarloaf Marina and the storage yard, is closed until further notice, with barricades put in place to limit boaters access. Emergency personnel have access to the ramp if required in an emergency.

On Friday, April 3, 2020 the City of Port Colborne, along with the Niagara Region and fellow municipalities declared a State of Emergency. With the arrival of warmer weather, and the upcoming religious holidays, some across Niagara may not be following the public health directives as closely as they should be. Residents and visitors are reminded that the following directives are now in place:

- Stop all gatherings of more than five people;

- Avoid all recreational outdoor amenities;

- Close all non-essential businesses. Marinas are not deemed essential by the latest Order of the Provincial government – refer to https://www.ontario.ca/page/list-essential-workplaces%20(found in section 21, subsection c);

- Stay home as much as possible and only leave the house once a week if required;

- Practice physical distancing and wash hands frequently; and

- Self-isolate for 14 days if you have symptoms or have returned to Canada from being outside the country.

Municipalities across Ontario have the power to issue fines to enforce these public health and emergency directives. Failing to comply with an emergency order carries a fine of $750 per offense, and up to $1,000 for obstructing those attempting to carry out their duties under the Act.

As our environment changes daily because of COVID-19, we are monitoring the situation and following government recommendations. We will provide updates as they become available, which includes service delivery changes. That being said, our government is currently asking you to stay home.

We will get out on the water again if we practice what is being asked of us now.

Please, #StayHomeNiagara boaters and help #flattenthecurve.

Sincerely,

The team at Sugarloaf Marina
