COVID-19: CP pedestrian bridge closing; shared surfaces caution

For immediate release: March 25, 2020 - 4:58pm
FR20-1128

We are constantly reassessing developments to ensure the safety and well-being of staff and citizens, and how the City delivers public services during the COVID-19 pandemic.

CP Rail Pedestrian Bridge

Effective March 25, the City has decided to close the CP Pedestrian Bridge as it is not wide enough to practice social distancing (keeping a distance of at least 2-metres from others). The pedestrian bridge will remain closed until further notice.

Shared surfaces

In keeping with public health guidelines, residents should avoid touching shared surfaces in public, such as pedestrian crosswalk buttons, handrails and benches. Try to avoid using your hands to touch any of these surfaces and use your elbow or the side of your body to push crosswalk buttons. Always wash your hands as soon as you can and if you can’t, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer instead. The City appreciates your help in keeping us all safe and preventing the spread of COVID-19.

Playground structures

Crews will be working over the next few days to close off the 194 City playground structures throughout Saskatoon; however, we ask residents to immediately stop using these facilities.
