The City of North Battleford is operating under its Pandemic Plan to ensure the continuation of priority services and to help limit the spread of COVID-19 in the Battlefords. These precautions will take effect Wednesday, March 18th, 2020 and will be in place indefinitely.
The following facilities will be closed:

City of North Battleford Leisure Services run programming and drop-in classes will be postponed during these closures. Passes and memberships will be extended for the length of time of these closures. Private bookings may proceed if they do not exceed 200 people. These private bookings must not have speakers or attendees who have travelled internationally in the last 14 days.
During this time there will be no public access to the North Battleford Fire Hall, Water Treatment Plant and the Wastewater Treatment Plant. The Waste Management Facility will remain open to the public.
As a community everyone can play a role in reducing exposure and spread of COVID-19 by practicing proper cough and sneezing etiquette (into the bend of your elbow), washing your hands often with soap and water for a recommended 20-seconds, avoiding touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands and practicing social distancing. To help limit the spread of COVID-19 the City is asking people to limit their access to City Hall by conducting phone meetings and paying bills online. Online payments can be accessed by going to www.cityofnb.ca and clicking on “Make Payment” in the top right corner. Heavy haul permits, parking fines, taxes, utility bills, accounts receivables and soon to be available, criminal record checks can be purchased online.
Avoid misinformation, rumours and bad information by getting the most accurate and up-to-date information from the Government of Saskatchewan about the COVID-19 virus. Please visit www.saskatchewan.ca/coronavirus today.
