MONTREAL -- Municipal buildings in the Town of Mount Royal will close their doors on Oct. 1 after the province declared the greater Montreal area a coronavirus “red zone.”

Entering a red zone means non-essential activities will be restricted where the risk of infection can’t be sufficiently contained.

These municipal buildings that will be closed until at least Oct. 28:

  • Pierre Laporte Pool (955 Rockland Rd.)
  • Reginald J. P. Dawson Library (1967 Graham Blvd.)

Only people with appointments will be allowed to enter the building, and they will need to wear a mask when inside. Outdoor events will still be allowed with physical distancing. 

The facilities will be closed at the request of the town council. 

UPDATE: After initially announcing it would close, the Town of Mount-Royal now says the municipal arena will remain open and therefore, the planned activities will take place in the arena.
