The city of Deux Montagnes has put in place a series of measures following the latest announcements from the Government of Quebec. These measures aim to limit contact between people and to prevent the spread of Covid-19.

As of Monday January 11, the doors of the town hall will be closed to the population, as well as those of all administrative offices (Leisure department, Public works, Urban planning, and Environment). City services will continue to be offered remotely and, if necessary, citizens can make an appointment in one of our offices, in accordance with the sanitary measures issued by Public Health.

LIBRARY

Although it is no longer possible to access the shelving, and this since last fall, the Deux-Montagnes library remains open to collect borrowed documents. However, opening hours will be revised to align with the 8 p.m. curfew that came into effect on Saturday, January 9: Monday to Friday, the library will close at 7 p.m. instead of 8 p.m.

As for the modalities surrounding access to study spaces for students, the city is awaiting the ministerial decree which details the new measures to be applied. Details will therefore be communicated as soon as the decree is available and their team has assessed its implementation.

Subscribers can reserve documents via the  library catalog  or by phone (450 473-2796, option 5) during opening hours. They will receive a call when their documents are ready to be picked up at the counter.

OUTDOOR SKATING RINKS

The cooler weather allowed the city to open the ice trail at Olympia Park. This trail is ready to welcome skaters tomorrow as of January 9. City teams are working to prepare the other rinks in Park Central and Park Olympia, which in turn will be able to accommodate the skaters in the coming days, depending on weather conditions.

Skating is permitted but must be limited to the family bubble. As it will no longer be allowed to participate in outdoor activities in groups, free hockey games will be prohibited.

Also, to ensure compliance with the 8 p.m. curfew, the park lights will go out at 7:30 p.m.

OLYMPIA ARENA

Considering that indoor sports activities are now prohibited until February 8, the Olympia Arena will be closed as of January 9. The free skate activity is therefore canceled.

MUNICIPAL COURT

Limited access to citizens is maintained for the Municipal Court, for appearances and for payment of statements, while respecting directives aimed at limiting the spread of the virus (in particular hand disinfection at reception, presence of a citizen at a time, etc.).
