New restrictions in Magog

Record Staff

The City of Magog has decided to close the Cabana and du Moulin parking lots to the public. Since it is strongly recommended to restrict travel between municipalities and regions, this measure is intended to limit the number of visitors from outside the city. In addition, the bicycle path located between rue du Belvédère and the boat launch on rue de Hatley is also closed. Since the path is narrow and busy, it is difficult to maintain a distance of two metres between pedestrians or cyclists.
The Mayor of Magog, Mrs. Vicki-May Hamm sent the following statement to explain the City’s decision: “We know that all these measures are really restrictive,” Hamm said, adding it brings no joy to have to make these decisions. “But the more we follow health advice, the faster we can get out of this crisis,” the mayor said. She added, “Since it is recommended that you get some fresh air, which may seem a bit contradictory in the current context, I suggest that you take advantage of the fact that there are fewer vehicles on the roads to walk with your family in your neighbourhood. However, you should maintain a distance of two metres from your neighbours or any other person who does not live under the same roof as you. I wish you all the best of health and hope, because together we can do it. Ça va bien aller!”
