Mesures to reduce and delay transmission of COVID-19

The government of Québec had decreed last Friday to prohibit all indoor and outdoor gatherings. A minimum distance of two meters is to be maintained between all individuals. At the same time the virus has arrived in our areas of Hampstead and Côte Saint-Luc. The CBC newsfeed reported on recent events which resulted in known infected cases. The contacts were in the community and the infection will propagate. The Town Administration has instituted the following measures:

DAILY OUTREACH

The Town has established a Daily Outreach program for those residents alone or in isolation.
Town employees will call those residents, who registered in this program, on a daily basis.
We will provide primarily a call-in-touch program and help pass on information for queries.
 

PARKS & EQUIPMENT
Fences had been installed to enclose all play equipment and exercise equipment in all Hampstead parks. The equipment is off-limits to all users and it is to prevent contamination and spread of the COVID-19 virus.
The dog run is closed under the same Social Distancing measure and to avoid cross-infection between humans and pets.
 

PARKS
Parks and Greenspace remain open but residents are advised to keep a minimum distance of 2 meters from each other.
 

PUBLIC SECURITY OFFICERS
PSO on duty will wear gloves and masks. A face-shield may also be worn by the PSO. The measure is precautionary in nature.  It is to protect our patrollers and the general public.
Note: Alien invasions will be separately reportedsmiley
We are assessing the situation as it evolves and we will intervene to help halt the coronavirus outbreak spread.

 

Please remember that preventing infections is everyone's responsibility - for you and your loved ones.
