Stage 2 Re-opening

In case you missed it, we are now in Stage 2 re-opening (as of June 30). But what does that mean, you wonder?

It means it’s patio time for tables of 6 or less. Outdoor barbeque/park time for groups of 25 or less. All the while complying with public health advice on physical distancing. This includes city parks, beaches and picnic areas, and the chairs and bistro tables at Market Square. Or you can gather indoors with 5 or less people.

To provide some help to the recovering arts sector, the city of Kingston has granted noise bylaw exemptions to arts and culture events.

Sporty folks: sports fields are open for team play. Permits are required and will be coordinated with partner and adult groups. Indoor athletic facilities remain closed to the public, but outdoor fitness classes have begun.

For all of the details, including those for weddings and religious gatherings, see the memo from the Kingston-Frontenac Lennox & Addington Public Health website.

And has a handy list of attractions, museums, and recreational facilities that are open in Kingston, which are all subject to certain conditions.

How does this affect real estate, you ask? It doesn’t, really. We are still doing showings wearing masks, sanitizing, and no open houses, but Lorna and I host Facebook Live Virtual Open Houses for the properties we list, so be sure to “Like” our Facebook Page @LynnLornaYGKHomes to stay in the know!

I was introduced to the Kingston area as a university student in the 1990s, and was drawn back to the area with my family in 2016 after living in Vancouver and Toronto. I have gotten to know and love the city of Kingston and surrounding areas including Lennox & Addington and Frontenac Counties.
Previously an entrepreneur and software consultant and trainer, I use the interpersonal, communication, research and tech skills I gained in these careers to help you sell and find the right home. Working with honesty, integrity, and a passion for helping others, I put your home buying and selling needs first and foremost.
When not helping clients, I enjoy time outdoors and volunteering for community organizations on Amherst Island, where I live with my husband, two children and our whoodle.
