The CN Tower has temporarily closed its doors once more.

The popular Toronto landmark closed on October 3 amid a surge in COVID-19 cases.

“The CN Tower will suspend its operations to do our part to prevent the spread of COVID-19, and hopefully help to flatten the curve,” says the popular attraction on social media.”The health and safety of our staff and guests is our priority.”

The tower first closed in early March and reopened in mid-July.

The announcement comes during a spike in coronavirus cases in Ontario. On Friday, October 2, the province set a record for the largest single day increase with 732 new cases.

There were also 653 cases announced on Saturday and 566 detected on Sunday.

“We look forward to welcoming guests back to the Tower as soon as public health authorities and Canada Lands Company determine that it is safe to do so,” says CN Tower.

Any guests that have already purchased tickets are asked to contact the CN Tower via email.
