The Town of Niagara-on-the-Lake is producing videos on how to get together safely, now that the province has allowed people to gather in groups of 10, Lord Mayor Betty Disero told council last week.

“We're doing a series of videos and instructional videos in consultation with members of the community, the Shaw guild and others to explain to people how to be safe,” she said.

She said she’s been receiving increased emails from residents who are concerned about the number of people in town on weekends.

The first instruction, she said, would be to visit Queen Street “when the crowds are not as as large as they are, let's say Saturday and Sunday afternoon.”

Other videos, she said, will focus on “how to have a group of people over, how to shop for essential products, how to do different things in the community, that one would just sort of take for granted prior to COVID-19.”

She reminded council that the pandemic is not over.

“We're still in the midst of it. So it's an extra special caution to everybody,” she said.
