COVID-19 Entrance Restrictions at Recreation, Culture and Community Services Facilities

To help reduce the risk of exposure to, and spread of COVID-19, the City of Belleville’s Recreation, Culture & Community Services department has put the following policy in place:

Visitors, participants, coaches and team personnel residing in an Orange (Restrict), Red (Control), Grey (Lockdown) Zone or residing outside the province of Ontario, shall not be permitted to use any Recreation, Culture & Community Services facility. 

This includes, but is not limited to: recreation and culture activities, rentals and City of Belleville led initiatives at the Quinte Sports & Wellness Centre, Glanmore National Historic Site, Parkdale Community Centre and Community Archives.

In the event that Hastings, Prince Edward Public Health should move to Orange, Red or Grey Zone designation, those who reside within the HPEPH region will still be permitted to use the facilities. Anyone who resides outside of the HPEPH region who is in an Orange, Red or Grey zone will not be permitted.

The policy will take effect on Thursday, November 26, 2020 and will remain in effect until further notice.

The City of Belleville recognizes the importance of its recreational and cultural facilities and amenities and the role they play in helping to achieve a healthy and active lifestyle, not to mention positive mental health benefits.  Our goal is to ensure we can keep these facilities open in a healthy and safe manner. At this time, we must do everything to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. 

Visitors, participants and teams who are currently registered in a program or have a rental with us and reside in an orange, red or grey zone will be eligible for a full credit/refund.  All others using the facilities are asked to comply with the new restrictions when registering for a course, booking a rental or visiting our facility. The City looks forward to welcoming back all clients to our facilities once it is safe to do so.

“The health and safety of our community is our top priority. Making these entrance restriction changes in our Recreation, Culture & Community Services facilities will go a long way in reducing potential exposure to COVID-19 from higher risk areas,” said Mayor Mitch Panciuk. “We thank everyone in advance for their understanding as we make this move to keep our community safe.”
