West Lincoln is following Lincoln’s lead by closing West Lincoln Community Centre to patrons outside the Niagara Region.

The decision, supported by Niagara Public Health, was made “in an effort to reduce the odds of even further restrictions under the Province’s COVID-19 Response Framework,” said West Lincoln Mayor Dave Bylsma. “Limiting attendance to local users is a temporary measure and we look forward to seeing those folks who enjoy our facility as soon as possible.”

The centre includes a library, 450-seat ice rink, indoor walking track, community rooms and skateboard park.

This news comes shortly after Lincoln announced recently that it will be banning visitors from areas outside of the Niagara Region in its two community ice rink facilities until further notice.

Other West Niagara communities, like Grimsby, have restrictions in place, with Grimsby town manager Harry Schlange saying that individuals from COVID-19 red zones would be turned away if inquiring about rink rentals at the Peach King Centre.
