Lost. In exile. With no place to go.
Yesterday our government took additional steps to further restrict citizen liberties. They closed all private seasonal campgrounds in Ontario.
My note to the management at our seasonal site here in Canada:
We understand that the government of Ontario updated their list of essential businesses today and it now includes the following:
13. Hotels, motels, other shared rental accommodation including student residences, except for seasonal campgrounds and any pools, fitness centres, meeting rooms and other recreational facilities that may be part of the operations of these businesses.
It appears as though seasonal campgrounds must close by Saturday [today]. Could you let us know whether this impacts our seasonal site?
And their reply:
I hope you and Lorraine are well. I did receive your voicemail yesterday and had hoped to get back to you sooner, but of course with these new developments the day just got away from me.
I have drafted a letter that will be going out to all our seasonal guests shortly. Please just know that we are continuing to do everything possible to be able to remain open for our full time guests, at minimum. With the state of emergency in place until April 13th we are hoping to know more and have more clarification this coming week.
I apologize I don’t have a more black and white answer for you at this time. We will continue to seek out this clarification moving forward.
With the government suggesting that they will keep stringent measures in place for the next several months, I have no idea what we will do for a home base in Ontario. We cannot stay where we are for much longer.
Day 10 in mandatory quarantine and it just gets better every day.
