As a result of the significant growth of Omicron variant cases, the United Counties of Prescott and Russell (UCPR) wish to inform the public that access to its offices will remain restricted until further notice.

In addition to most employees of the UCPR returning to telework, this measure aims to ensure the health and safety of the residents in the region while limiting any potential risk of spreading the virus. As of today, all customers and visitors are asked not to present themselves physically at any UCPR administrative offices. However, most services offered by the UCPR will remain available by appointment, by telephone, or virtually.
