Efforts to enforce social distaincing with signs, warnings were unsuccessful

NORTH VANCOUVER (NEWS 1130) — Two popular outdoor destinations in North Vancouver will be closed Sunday morning because people are failing to follow health officials’ advice to keep their distance.

The District of North Vancouver says Quarry Rock and the Lynn Canyon Suspension Bridge will be closed to the public as of 7 a.m. March 22.

This measure follows efforts of district staff who posted signs and warned people setting out on trails to stay two metres apart.

City parks, sports fields, and community centres have already been closed due to concerns over the spread of the novel coronavirus, which has killed ten people in the province.

All the people who have died are connected to the Lynn Valley Care home which is in North Vancouver.
