Hills COVID alert level downgraded


The COVID-19 pandemic has hit Gatineau Hills businesses hard in different ways.


The bouldering and fitness gym in Wakefield has been closed more than it’s been open since it first opened its doors in 2019, and Nikosi Bistro Pub, also in Wakefield, had to dump 16 kegs worth of beer, which it wasn’t allowed to sell, down the drain.
