Lakeshore’s West Beach in Belle River is Closed effective immediately

During a Special Council meeting last night, Lakeshore Council voted to close the West Beach effective immediately.

Lakeshore’s West Beach in Belle River has seen a dramatic increase in the number of visitors who are not following the physical distancing requirements recommended by public health officials. A number of safety concerns have arisen which prompted Council to make this decision.

“The West Beach is a popular destination on Lake St. Clair” stated Mayor Tom Bain. “We recognize that many of our residents and families enjoy visiting the beach but, unfortunately the large number of people creates significant concerns.”

Boaters coming from the lakeside are requested to stop bringing their water craft to the West Beach as well.

The Windsor Essex Health Unit will not be performing weekly beach inspections or testing beach water for the presence of E.Coli during the 2020 season, which is a safety concern.

Lakeshore’s Emergency Control Group will continue to monitor the situation. Prior to reopening, Lakeshore will review procedures to ensure West Beach remains a family-friendly destination for residents and visitors.
