Cobourg Community Centre Has Weekend COVID Closure

In City Hall, Local

By Cecilia Nasmith/Today’s Northumberland

In accordance with Public Health Ontario and local health authorities, the Town of Cobourg has announced the weekend closure of the Cobourg Community Centre due to a recent close contact with an individual who has tested positive for COVID-19.

The decision was made after users of the D’Arcy Street centre reported close contact with an individual who had recently tested positive. As a precaution, the centre will be thoroughly cleaned and sanitized throughout, including both arenas, workspaces, washrooms, change rooms and high-touch surfaces.

“For the safety of our staff, facility users and entire community, we have chosen to close the community centre for the weekend to undergo a deep clean, as recommended by public health authorities,” Cobourg Chief Administrative Officer Tracey Vaughan said in the press release.

“We are committed to the safety and wellbeing of our community, and are taking every measure to reduce the risk of spread of COVID-19.”

Anyone who visited this facility last week is asked to follow Public Health Ontario’s recommendations at publichealthontario.ca/en/diseases-and-conditions/infectious-diseases/respiratory-diseases/novel-coronavirus.

All community centre staff and users are encouraged to self-monitor and be vigilant for COVID-19 symptoms.”
