County adjusts operations in response to rise in COVID-19 cases

December 16, 2021

The County is taking extra precautions in response to the recent rise in COVID-19 cases across the Hastings-Prince Edward region.

Effective December 17, The County will close the canteen service at the Wellington and District Community Centre and the Prince Edward Community Centre. In addition, no outside food or drink will be allowed into the arenas. This was being offered on a pilot basis, but given the increase in COVID-19 cases the municipality made the decision to better ensure patrons leave their masks on at all times when inside the recreation facilities.

The County is also increasing enforcement of mask requirements in County-operated facilities, including arenas and town halls. Spot checks will occur over the next several weeks and people found not wearing a mask or improperly wearing a mask could be subject to a fine up to $1,000.

The municipality is continuing to check proof of vaccination at the front door of the arenas. Currently, people 12 years of age or older must show proof of vaccination before entering an arena, with the exception of youth between the ages of 12 and 17 participating in organized sports. However, the provincial government is eliminating that exemption effective December 20.

County Council will resume meeting virtually in the new year. The next meeting of Council is Tuesday, January 11. The public can watch Council, Committee of the Whole, and Planning Committee meetings live on the . Members of the public who want to make a deputation or provide a comment as an audience member can do so through Zoom. Email the Clerk’s Office at clerks@pecounty.on.ca for more information.

Municipal offices remain open to serve the public. The County continues to thoroughly clean and disinfect common areas. Beginning December 21, services offered at Shire Hall will temporarily shift to the Edward Building, Suite 103. Because of the smaller waiting area, the municipality is asking the public to go online whenever possible to make payments and access services. Visit the County website for more information or call Customer Service for assistance at 613.476.2148 extension 1023 or 613.962.9108 extension 1023.
