”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
