Covid 19 Updates
We Remain Open as an Essential Service
The City and County of Peterborough have shifted into a 30-day, stay at home order, effective Thursday, April 8th.
We have been deemed an essential service, our health care and seniors support programs are necessary to keep the most vulnerable safe in their own homes. For Community Care, this does not require any additional changes in services or how we provide services at this time

We are currently unable to offer in-person classes in community centres and retirement homes because of the pandemic restrictions. However, we have a great line-up of classes you can take using Zoom.
