Two Days of Free Hand Sanitizer Giveaways
Having entered Stage 3 of the Province of Ontario’s re-opening framework, the City of Windsor is making free hand sanitizer available to the general public. While previous distribution has occurred at the WFCU Centre, complimentary disbursements will occur at three separate municipal locations and allow for a walk-up format.
Tuesday, August 25, 2020 from 12 noon to 4 p.m. at Patterson Park in Sandwich Town. Note: residents should approach the white tent in the middle of Paterson Park (3063 Sandwich Street).
Wednesday, August 26, 2020 from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. at Ford Test Track. Note: residents can receive sanitizer at the white tent at the south side off Milloy Street near the playground.
Wednesday from 1 to 3 p.m., the free hand sanitizer will be available at the Windsor International Transit Terminal at 300 Chatham Street West.
In total, nearly 2,400 bottles of free sanitizer will be handed out, two bottles per person. Please note: social distancing and masks will be required at each location.
“Since the start of this crisis, the City of Windsor has partnered with our hometown distillery to make locally produced hand sanitizer available for residents seeking to stay healthy and safe,” said Windsor Mayor Drew Dilkens. “Now that our region has entered Stage 3, it’s more important than ever to keep up on our public health recommendations.”
The free sanitizer is 80% ethanol and produced by Hiram Walker & Sons Ltd. using the World Health Organization recipe and bottled in 375-millilitre containers donated by Highbury Canco in Leamington.
