Premier Ball Announces Closure of Marble Mountain Amid COVID-19 Risks

  • Executive Council

March 13, 2020

The Provincial Government is actively monitoring COVID-19, as it continues to be an evolving and fluid situation. Officials are monitoring the evolution of the situation closely, and we are in regular communication with federal, provincial and territorial partners. Working together, we aim to mitigate the impact of COVID-19. To date, there are no confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the province.

Public health officials are working closely with their colleagues across Canada to ensure cases of COVID-19 are quickly identified and managed. As a result, non-essential gatherings or events of 250 people or more should be cancelled or postponed.

In light of national and provincial concerns of the ongoing and rapidly developing issues resulting from COVID-19, and in consultation with Dr. Janice Fitzgerald, Chief Medical Officer of Health, effective immediately, Marble Mountain Ski Resort will be closed for remainder of the 2020 ski season.

We will continue to monitor and where necessary implement protocols regarding public gatherings. For information on COVID-19, please visit the Department of Health and Community Services website.

“Consistent communication across and within jurisdictions is important for a coordinated response to COVID-19. We will continue to share current information and identify appropriate resources to ensure we are prepared to respond in Newfoundland and Labrador.”
Honourable Dwight Ball
Premier of Newfoundland and Labrador
