Like many smaller communities, Sauble Beach is feeling the impact of COVID-19.
The streets are quiet and the businesses are shuttered. While, for many, May 24th weekend is the major opening of the town, Easter weekend can also be busy, but not so this year.
Signage everywhere attests to the closures, including one that asks cottagers to “pick a home and stay there”. In a recent interview, Mayor Janice Jackson urged cottagers not to travel to Sauble but, if they do, then plan on staying and not travel back and forth to their urban homes. It’s a stand being taken by many rural community mayors.
