Peterborough, ON - The City of Peterborough emergency declaration related to the COVID-19 pandemic remains in place until further notice.

While the emergency declaration is in effect, the City is gradually re-opening municipal facilities and programs for in-person services following provincial emergency orders and guidance from local public health officials. Certain municipal facilities remain closed to the public at this time. Once dates have been set for re-openings, they will be posted on peterborough.ca/COVID19 and shared with local media.

For questions about reservations at municipal facilities, please contact City staff at the specific facility or contact the City at 705-742-7777 or by email.

A listing of affected municipal services is available online at peterborough.ca/COVID19.

While most municipal facilities are closed to the public at this time, many services remain available with staff either working on site or remotely – communicating with residents and customers through phone, email and online platforms.

Protocols for re-opening municipal facilities to the public are being prepared to help ensure the health and wellbeing of residents and employees.
