Deux-Montagnes, January 8, 2021 – 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.
Put in place 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.
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 will come 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, we are 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 our 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 us to open the ice trail at Olympia Park. This trail is ready to welcome skaters tomorrow, January 9. Our teams are working to prepare the other rinks in Parc Central and Parc 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, in order to ensure compliance with the 8 p.m. curfew, the park lights will go out at 7:30 p.m.

Considering that indoor sports activities are now prohibited until February 8, the Olympia Arena will be closed as of tomorrow, January 9. The free skate activity is therefore canceled.
Limited access to citizens is maintained for the Municipal Court, in particular 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.).
