COVID-19 – Specifications about public drop-in activities

Gatineau, October 15, 2020. – Given that Gatineau is in the red zone, starting on October 15, organized sport and recreational activities are suspended until further notice. However, certain public drop-in activities will continue, with the proper hygiene practices.
Public drop-in activities offered by Gatineau will resume at the centre sportif, at the aquatic centres and at the arenas, as well as at certain community centres, starting on October 17. Outdoor facilities will also remain open, although equipment loans will be suspended.
Gatineau has increased the number of hours of public activities in its facilities. These include skating, swimming, badminton and pickleball.
An online reservation system has been set up on the new residents' portal.
- A valid Accès Gatineau + card is needed to make reservations.
- Cards can be renewed on the residents' portal.
- Reservations are strongly recommended. Proof of reservation is required to access the site, for instance a printout of the reservation or a confirmation on a cell phone.
- In case of a no-show, the spot will be freed up 15 minutes after the start of the activity and given to another participant.
- Available spots can be given to participants who show up without a reservation.
- Assistance and guidance are available for residents who are not comfortable with electronic devices. These services are available at the service centre recreation counters and at the aquatic centre and centre sportif reception desks.
A maximum of 25 people is permitted per court, including municipal employees. The number of spots available for participants is based on the facility's capacity.
The lockers and showers are off-limits. Only the washrooms are accessible. There are no change areas except for people using the pools.
Participants must bring their equipment and a towel, hand sanitizer and a water bottle. There are accessible water fountains.
Participants have 45 minutes to use the facilities, with 15 minutes set aside every hour for disinfecting and to prevent people from crossing paths.
