Omicron brings changes to Saint-Eustache winter activities

With the objective of maximizing service to citizens and promoting physical activity despite the Covid-19, the City of Saint-Eustache announced certain additional conditions as well as the partial reopening of its sports complexes, for the practice of supervised activities with the greatest respect for health rules.

 In the Guy-Bélisle Library until further notice, no entertainment activities will be held at the library. These will resume when the instructions from Public Health allow it.

From now on, residents 13 years of age and over going to the library to borrow books must have their vaccination passport and proof of identity on hand. However, citizens making reservations online or by telephone will not have to present this proof to collect their books

Residents must wear a procedural medical mask in order to enter the establishment. Fabric face coverings are no longer tolerated. This measure comes into effect immediately.

At the Saint-Eustache Aquatic Complex the population of Saint-Eustache (and those of towns with an agreement, namely Boisbriand and Deux-Montagnes) will be able to take advantage of the pools as of January 8. Each of them can accommodate a maximum of 15 swimmers who will have booked their time slot online using their Citizen Card.

At the Multisport complex, as of January 7, residents can reserve a soccer, pickleball or badminton field at the Multisport Complex. To take advantage of these indoor sports facilities, Eustachians must reserve their time slot by email ([email protected]), indicating their Citizen Card number. Sports can be practiced in pairs or in a family bubble only.

At the Walter-Buswell Complex (arenas) Eustachians will be able to enjoy free skating at the Walter-Buswell Complex, starting January 7, for a maximum of 20 people per time slot. To practice their favorite sport, citizens must register in advance with their Citizen Card number on hand.

The vaccination passport and an identity document are required for people aged 13 and over to access all of the above Saint-Eustache buildings and at the Walter-Buswell Complex, skaters must wear the procedural mask at all times.

For the moment, the start of the courses and the activities of the winter session is postponed at least to the end of January 2022. The date will be reassessed according to the directives of Public Health regarding indoor gatherings. 

Outdoor sports facilities remain accessible to the population. The chalets can also be used to put on or take off the skates or other preparation for sports practice. Those entering, however, should wear the procedural mask and not dwell in the area for too long.
