Latest update: February 18th, 2021

The village of Senneville is still closely monitoring the evolution of the situation with the various government stakeholders and relies on their recommendations to put in place the necessary measures to protect the population.

 

COVID19-Measures in force 

  • Curfew

Between 8 p.m. and 5 a.m. Quebecers must not leave their homes except in cases that justify travel.

  • Travel between regions and cities

    Not recommended (except for essential travel, students, workers, shared custody, freight transportation).

  • Indoor or outdoor gatherings in private homes (house and cottage)

    Prohibited:

    • visitors from another address

    Allowed:

    • one visitor from another address for single individuals (the same person to limit social contacts)
    • one informal caregiver
    • individuals offering services or support

    Single parent or blended families:

    • Two partners who do not live at the same address can see each other, but their children cannot go with them during these visits.
    • A person can stay overnight with their partner but cannot travel between 8 p.m. and 5 a.m.
    • Two partners can participate in sports or recreational activities in pairs, but their children cannot go with them.
  • Sports and recreation

    Travel between regions is not recommended.

    Sports and recreational activities (e.g. skiing, ski lessons, snowshoeing, skating, pickup hockey), including guided activities, lessons and training, will be permitted in outdoor public places for individuals, pairs and members of the same household, as well as groups of no more than 4 individuals from more than one household. An individual supervising activities may join in for monitoring or facilitation purposes. Anyone engaging in these activities must respect the physical distancing guidelines.

    The number of people present is determined by the site managers based on the capacity of the facility and allowing for physical distancing measures to be strictly applied and contact between people to be avoided.

    At outdoor sites with controlled access, the number of visitors permitted must be managed.

    At sites with open access, the visitor capacity must be indicated along with a reminder concerning applicable public health guidelines.

    Facilities where participants can get ready (e.g. put on their skates, wax their skis), warm up or eat are allowed to remain open, provided the current health guidelines are strictly respected. Access to locker rooms is not permitted. Wherever possible, participants are encouraged to arrive ready to engage in their activity.

    Indoor activities are not permitted.

    Competitions and spectators are not permitted.

    One person may be permitted to accompany another when necessary (e.g. the parent of a child under 10 years old or the individual accompanying a person with a disability).

    Training for individuals responsible for ensuring the safety of participants engaging in informal activities is permitted (e.g. lifeguard or ski patrol training). However, training activities must strictly respect the physical distance guidelines and any contact between individuals must be avoided.

    Beginning on February 26, 2021:

    • the number of people residing at different addresses who may engage in sports and recreational activities in outdoor public places will increase from 4 to 8. A person with responsibility for the activity may provide supervision or direction. The limit does not apply to people who reside at the same address;
    • swimming pools and ice rinks may reopen. The only activities permitted will be the individual practice of a sport, or a training session for one or two people with an instructor.
  • Teleworking

    All employees of businesses, organizations or the public administration who perform administrative tasks or office work must continue to perform such tasks through teleworking in their private homes or the equivalent, except for employees whose presence is essential for the pursuit of the activities of the business, the organization, or the public administration.

 

Other long-term measures

Broader police interventions

Offence reports and fines will be issued to individuals who fail to comply with the measures
