The rats are being dealt with but kids are still being kept off the playground at a Vancouver daycare.
Kelly Walker with the YMCA says the city has paved the area near the Little Beach YMCA, and there are fewer rats scurrying around.
She says Vancouver Coastal Health is coming to check out the grounds before kids are allowed back into the play area.
She says, “We’ve been in regular contact with them as the situation has developed. We hope to reopen early next week or even later today if they are able to approve it that quickly. But right now we are unsure as to how quickly that might be.”
She says kids are being taken to nearby parks and on walks to get the outdoor time they need.
