NEWS RELEASE
PARKS CANADA
*************************
In recent days, many Haligonians have used the green space and roads at Halifax Citadel National Historic Site, some of whom were in groups and not applying the physical distancing recommendations provided by public health experts to limit the spread of the COVID-19 virus. 

Parks Canada is therefore implementing additional temporary road and ground closures at Halifax Citadel National Historic Site to support Canada’s efforts to limit the spread of COVID-19 and protect the health and safety of Canadians, visitors, and its employees.

The entire grounds of Halifax Citadel National Historic Site, including the fort and all the green space, roads, and pathways on the property are temporarily closed until further notice as of 12:01 a.m. on Wednesday, April 8.

This closure includes the pathway on Brunswick Street leading to the Old Town Clock.

We are asking all Haligonians to work together. We know that many of you have a special connection to “Citadel Hill” and it is an integral part of the fabric of Halifax. However, we are implementing these closures to protect all Nova Scotians, especially those who are most at risk. Parks Canada is asking everyone to stay home to protect themselves, their loved ones and the collective community.

During these temporary closures, access to Halifax Citadel National Historic Site will be maintained for a limited number of critical staff. Parks Canada will continue to deliver critical services, including road maintenance, among others. 

Detailed information on Parks Canada places and the measures the Agency is taking to limit the spread of COVID-19 can be found at pc.gc.ca. Please check regularly for updates.
