Health measures

Swimming lessons for Juniors 5 to 10 will be the same as usual. The instructor will stay out of the water to respect physical distancing.

For the Preschool and Juniors 1 to 4, the lessons will be in a parent-child format. Meaning, that the parent must be in the water with the child during the swimming lesson.

To eliminate sources of transmission, we will use the pool equipment as little as possible. We strongly encourage you to purchase:

  • An aquafitness belt, an aquatic noodle and aquatic foam dumbbells for Aquajogging and Aquaforme.
  • An aquatic board and a leg float “Pull Buoy” for Juniors 5 to 10.
  • A life jacket (VFI), an aquatic noodle and aquatic foam dumbbells for Preschool and Junior 1 to 4.

In addition, we ask you to avoid the changing rooms. We suggest that you already arrive in a swimsuit and carry all your things in a large bag.

To have access to the activities, you will need to:

  • Respect the rules of physical distancing.
  • Wash your hands at the beginning and the end of the activity.
  • Take a twenty (20) seconds long shower.
  • Disinfect all personal items entering and leaving the pool.
  • Follow the instructions given by the instructor.
  • Make a self-diagnosis before showing up for each lesson.
    • If you have one (1) symptom among these:
      • Start or worsening of a cough
      • Fever (temperature 38 °C and above, temperature taken by mouth)
      • Breathing difficulty
      • Sudden loss of smell without nasal congestion, with or without loss of taste
    • If you have two (2) of these symptoms:
      • A general symptom (muscle pain, headache, fatigue or significant loss of appetite)
      • sore throat
      • Diarrhea

Anyone who presents one or more of these symptoms or who has been in contact with an infected person or who could be infected should not frequent the pool and must contact the COVID-19 information line at 1 877 644-4545 and notify the responsible of the pool.

Reopening of outdoor pools for summer 2020

On May 30, 2020, Government of Quebec announced the reopening of outdoor pools for this summer. Each week, we receive new guidelines regarding the reopening. The goal is to make sure Quebecers can enjoy safe and supervised aquatic activities.

For the moment, only free swimming is allowed. As of June 29, 2020, free swimming at the Goyette-Hill Park Pool will be permitted with specific schedules and under certain conditions. We are currently creating a schedule with specific time slots that will respect the government’s requirements.

As for swimming lessons and aquafit classes, we are still waiting for the guidelines. New information is available every day, and we are doing our best to adapt quickly and stay up to date on the measures in place.

If you are interested in taking swimming lessons this summer, we encourage you to pre-register before June 19, 2020 at 5:00 p.m. on this web site:

https://www.amilia.com/store/en/ville-de-sutton/shop/programs.

These pre-registrations give us an overview of how many people are interested and will serve as references if swimming lessons are made official. 

Thank you for your collaboration.

Message from the Mayor – COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

Hi, this is Michel Lafrance, Mayor of the Town of Sutton!

Because of the pandemic situation, I wish to inform you that volunteers mandated by the Town will soon telephone our senior citizens to ensure that their needs are met, and link them with the appropriate government resources, if required. Should you get a call, tell the volunteer your needs, in this period of social distancing.

Also, following the progressive deconfinement announced by the Government of Québec, be advised that we are doing everything in our power to ensure your security.

Finally, I would like to thank all of our, citizens and volunteers, for your individual efforts and your collaboration; you have made it possible to limit the number of COVID-19 cases in Sutton.

However, our collective efforts must continue in order to prevent COVID-19 infections from increasing locally; which would oblige us to re-establish stricter sanitary and confinement measures again.

Thank you for your cooperation and have a nice day!
