A summary of North Shore News according to each city Hall:
With the Easter break about to begin, the Town would like to remind citizens of the importance of respecting social distancing guidelines. Although Easter is usually an opportunity to reunite with family and loved ones, it is essential for residents to maintain the measures in order to avoid the spread of the virus. Thanks to technology, people will still be able to share beautiful moments with their loved ones! The city asks not to hesitate to use platforms such as Zoom, FaceTime and Skype to celebrate Easter… virtually!
Following the operations which took place during the night of March 29 to 30 in a sector of the city bordered by the Rivière aux Chiens, the City of Sainte Thérèse maintains the critical situation status regarding the possibilities of flooding of the river until further notice.
This means that citizens who have already installed sandbags must maintain these protective measures until the critical situation status is lifted. No houses were flooded, no streets were blocked, and the City continued to monitor the level of the river closely. The teams remain ready to intervene if necessary.
In order to limit the spread of the virus, the City of Boisbriand takes the situation very seriously and complies with the recommendations issued by the Government of Quebec.
Despite the closure of municipal buildings, several employees telework and are able to respond to citizens’ requests by telephone (voice mail – reminders made regularly) or online. In light of the current circumstances, note that the response time may be longer than usual.
The website will be updated as the situation evolves. The city asks the residents to consult it frequently.
