The City would like to inform you of the new measures coming into effect this Saturday until further notice in accordance with the recent government announcements in response to the COVID-19 pandemic for the period spanning from January 9 to February 8.

Outdoor skating rinks

The outdoor rinks will close at 7:30 p.m. and will be reserved for free skating only; hockey activities are not permitted. Furthermore, due to the circumstances, the rinks will be reserved for Pointe-Claire residents only.

Study periods at the Central Library

Starting Wednesday, January 13, in an effort to facilitate academic work for students living in Pointe-Claire, the Central Library will provide daily access to a space reserved for individual study (10 spots), family study (2 spots) or computer study (2 spots).

Interested citizens will have to sign up for each period on the LUDIK platform. It is requested that only one time slot be reserved per day so that more people can benefit from the study periods. Reservations can be made two days before the desired date. Family spots must be reserved by an adult, and children aged 8 and under must be accompanied. Wearing a mask or face covering is mandatory at all times inside the building. Disinfection rounds are scheduled between each time slot.
