While there have been no confirmed cases of the Coronavirus in the City of Belleville to date, the City’s Emergency Management Control Group met to discuss the municipality’s plan to address concerns arising from COVID-19. The group made recommendations and Mayor Mitch Panciuk and the Emergency Management Control Group have determined the following actions will be taken:




As of Monday, March 16, 2020, all programs, facility rentals and services taking place at the Quinte Sports and Wellness Centre, Belleville Public Library, John M. Parrott Art Gallery, Community Archives, Parkdale Community Centre, Hillcrest Community Centre and Glanmore National Historic Site will be suspended until further notice. This includes:
All recreation programs, including skating and swimming lessons
Drop-in programs
Family Dental Centre Indoor Track
Birthday parties
Recreational skating and swimming and open gymnasium
March Break camps
Facility, ice and meeting room rentals
Community Centre rentals
Special events

”In addition to these decisions, the City is considering many other preventative measures to reduce the risk to our residents,” said Mayor Mitch Panciuk. “Hand sanitizing stations are available in city facilities which are undergoing thorough cleaning on a frequent basis. Transit is regularly disinfecting handrails, fare boxes, seats and bell cords. We will continue to keep residents informed with regular updates.”For ongoing COVID-19 updates and ways to best protect you and your family visit: https://hpepublichealth.ca/Spring & Summer Registration
