Second wave of COVID-19

Following the announcement by government authorities that the Greater Montréal area (Communauté métropolitaine de Montréal – CMM) is being upgraded to Level 4 – Maximum Alert (red zone), the City is implementing new access restrictions and preventive measures from October 1 to 28 with regard to public meetings and access to municipal cultural buildings and services.

Public meetings

Public City Council and Demolition Committee meetings scheduled for October will be held without an audience and will be made available as a live broadcast and a recording on the City’s website.

Central Library and Valois Branch

From October 1 to 28, the Central Library and the Valois Branch will be closed to the public and all events, activities and lectures scheduled in these buildings will be cancelled or modified. Programming set to take place online or via the Zoom application will be maintained, the book chute will remain open for returns, and contactless loans will be available. For details on the contactless loan procedure, go to the Library page.

Stewart Hall Cultural Centre and Noël-Legault Community Centre

During the same period, the Art Gallery, Kids’ Corner and Reading and Reference Room at the Stewart Hall Cultural Centre will be closed to the public. Scheduled performances will be cancelled. Workshops and cultural programming will be maintained, modified or cancelled, as the case may be. Those registered will be notified. Check the calendar, Leisure Guide and Culture Notes regularly for updates on these activities.


Spot checks will be conducted at various times at the skatepark to remind users of the importance of keeping our distance and avoiding gatherings.

These preventive measures are subject to change as the situation evolves.

“Since March, we have been working together to limit the spread of the virus. Pointe-Claire is a close-knit, supportive community. Together, let’s continue to follow government guidelines to break this second wave and protect the most vulnerable among us so that we can get back to our normal lives,” Mayor John Belvedere said.
