Huntsville is reminding residents that a provincial order is requiring all recreational and outdoor amenities are closed until further notice.

Town staff has received reports of residents continuing to use sports fields, playgrounds and sport courts.

In a release, the town is asking you to obey posted signage and refrain from entering the designated area and avoid all group gatherings.

The town notes it is essential these emergency orders are followed in order to mitigate the spread of COVID-19.
