The City of Windsor is opening a temporary cooling centre for members of the general public who may be unable to find relief from the heat and humidity in the  atrium of the Windsor International Aquatic and Training Centre.

Redeployed City staff will be on site to assist those attending the location. Tables and chairs will be set up to ensure physical distancing requirements are met. Advanced screening of all visitors to this location will be in effect, and visitors should be prepared to answer questions upon entry. Masks are also suggested to be worn if attendees have them. In an effort to ensure physical distancing can be adhered to, it is asked that people attend this site only if they have no other options

Those attending are asked to bring food or materials to read if they wish, as none will be provided. The centre will be open from 11am to 7pm nd is scheduled to be open until at least Monday, as the extended heat warning is currently in effect until Sunday.

In addition, the program at Windsor Water World remains open and available for individuals in our community who are experiencing homelessness. This location, while providing shelter from the heat, also allows for more physical distancing within our shelter system. The program is open seven days a week from9am to 7pm.
