BROCKVILLE – The city’s Aquatarium has been given a stamp of approval for upholding high standards of health and safety, especially during the coronavirus pandemic.

The Aquatarium received the internationally recognized Safe Travels Stamp from the Tourism Industry Association of Ontario.

TIAO CEO Beth Potter says more Canadians are looking closer to home as they rediscover their own provinces.

The health and safety standards are set out by the World Travel and Tourism Council.

Roughly 185 Ontario attractions are on the Safe Travels Stamp list, including Rockport Boat Lines.
