During the COVID-19 pandemic, different services were offered to residents of the municipality of Alleyn-et-Cawood. During the first few months of lock-down, the municipality, which has a large number of elderly residents, offered a grocery delivery service. According to the Director General, Isabelle Cardinal, the municipality had a special agreement with the Sûreté du Quebec to pick up groceries from the Metro in Gracefield.
Due to the government loosening restrictions as part of the economic recovery plan, the delivery service ended in July.
