The City of Pointe-Claire would like to inform gardeners that it will be opening its community gardens this summer. To allow this activity to begin while complying with public health guidelines, a series of hygiene and physical distancing measures will be put in place and must be strictly adhered to by everyone.

Only members will have access to their respective gardens; a maximum of 10 people at a time will be allowed inside the enclosure. To avoid busy periods, gardeners will need to schedule a time slot. They will also be required to bring their own tools to the garden, wear gloves and wash their hands before entering and leaving the garden.

This summer, any group tasks should be avoided. If they are necessary, it is recommended to wear a mask. Those present must stay two metres apart, unless they live under the same roof.

In the current circumstances, people over the age of 70 and those with chronic illnesses or a weakened immune system should exercise caution and avoid visiting community gardens.
