The city of Kingston is waiving time restrictions for parking on city streets to accommodate healthcare workers experiencing changes in their daily commutes due to the novel coronavirus pandemic.

Usually, on city streets, the city of Kingston has parking restrictions between 10 a.m. and 11 a.m., and 2 p.m. and 3 p.m. Also, metred parking on many city streets is limited to three-hour stays.

Those restrictions are usually in place to allow for short-term parking in the downtown core and to encourage transit use among those who work downtown, including Queen’s University and hospital staff.

Due to concerns over the spread of COVID-19, Kingston Transit has changed its weekday schedules to a Saturday schedule, reducing public transit significantly in the city.
