Lending Programs

There are a variety of lending programs throughout Hastings and Prince Edward Counties to help you get moving. Some of these programs are listed below.

Urban Poles

Urban poling is a physical activity that combines walking with poles similar to ski poles. It can be done by people of any age at almost any level of fitness, and can be done outdoors anywhere at any time.

Urban Poling Kits are available for loan to community groups and workplaces.  The kit contains everything needed to start an urban poling program, including 10 pairs of urban poles for up to six (6) weeks.

If you are concerned about potential exposure to a positive case of COVID-19, please be reassured that any contacts of a confirmed case will be contacted directly and monitored by public health.

Low-risk and indirect contacts should self monitor for symptoms for 14 days from the time of potential exposure and seek testing if symptoms develop. Low risk contacts do not need to isolate unless symptoms develop, and can continue to attend school/work/daycare while monitoring for symptoms.
