The City of North Bay will be using the transit terminal on Oak Street as an alternate cooling centre in North Bay during declared heat events. 

That's according to city councillor Marcus Tignanelli who shared the news via social media on Thursday morning. 

"The health and safety of our community members and staff is the City’s top priority," Tignanelli stated.  

"The cooling centre will operate daily between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. and will follow COVID-19 protocols to ensure users can practise physical distancing. A limited number of people will be permitted in the cooling centre at one time. 

The City of North Bay is also encouraging the use of non-medical masks or face coverings within the cooling centre.

North Bay has been under a heat warning since Wednesday which Environment Canada has continued into Thursday for the region.
