Test clinic opens on the Place des Festivals

The COVID-19 test clinic has opened on the Place des Festivals and will operate every day from 8 till 8. People are already lining up.

CTV headlines a piece Montreal closes parks, but as I understand it, while playgrounds are off limits now, because you can’t risk kids playing together, larger parks are still accessible to people wanting to walk or run. CBC’s Kristy Snell tweeted a couple of shots from a Radio‑Canada photographer showing playground equipment covered with danger tape. There are many pocket parks that are basically only small playgrounds, which I suppose are off-limits now generally – but those have pretty much been out of use anyway, because of winter.
