Spring break: Take care and have fun!
The town of Sutton will likely see more visitors than usual during this well-deserved week off. The council therefore calls on everyone to be extra vigilant about health safety precautions. Currently we have no active COVID-19 cases in Sutton and there’s been a significant drop in cases in Estrie. If we keep up the good work, soon we’ll be back in the orange zone.
Reinforced police surveillance during the spring break
The Sûreté du Québec has announced an increase in its patrols in our territory during the upcoming weekends, in order to respond to calls and ensure compliance with road regulations and with health measures. On February 28 and March 3 our well-known SQ equestrian team will be patrolling the village, accompanied by car patrols.
Updated health measures in force as of February 26, 2021
- Gatherings in private residences (including rentals, chalets and Airbnbs) remain prohibited for visitors from other addresses. However, a single person with his/her children may join people residing at one other address—provided they already form a stable group.
- The limit of people from different residences permitted to practise sports and recreational activities together outside in public places has been increased from four to eight people. One person responsible for supervision or animation may also be present. This limit does not apply to people who reside at the same address.
- Pools and arenas have been reopened for free sports practices as well as individual or duo training with an instructor.
- Cinemas are now open again, in compliance with established hygienic measures, which include the compulsory wearing of masks and the attendance of a maximum of 250 people.
- All other health measures remain in force.
Final days for Sutton’s rink and ice path
Please note that the Goyette-Hill park chalet closes March 8 with the expiration of the ice maintenance contract and the start of grounds preparation for spring and summer activities. So make the most of the time we have left and go skating on the park’s illuminated ice path and rink in full view of Sutton’s snowy mountains: A guaranteed rush! The mayor and town councilors wish you a safe and happy spring break.
