COVID-19

Situation update

The Quebec government has set up a progressive regional alert and intervention system. This system defines additional measures to be taken as needed to ensure public safety in each of Quebec’s regions.

To learn more about the four alert levels and intervention measures, visit the Quebec government’s website.

Municipal measures

City Hall, including the Urban Planning, Permits and Inspection Department, which was scheduled to reopen to the public on January 11, will remain closed until February 8, 2021. Services will continue to be provided remotely by email or telephone.

For more urgent matters, however, it will be possible to make an appointment by calling the reception desk at 450 672-4444. Details below.

When the administrative services are open, rather than coming in person, the City is asking the Saint-Lambert population to prioritize remote requests by email or telephone whenever possible. Residents can contact the various City departments directly, or call the reception desk at 450 672-4444 or info.citoyens@saint-lambert.ca

The City of Saint-Lambert is monitoring the situation on an ongoing basis. All measures to reduce the risks of spreading COVID-19 are being implemented to ensure the health and safety of everyone in the municipality. 

Current level - RED

On January 6, the Quebec government announced updates for the regions categorized as Red Level (Maximum Alert) on January 8. Following this announcement, we have had to adapt our municipal services to comply with the government’s directives. The table below summarizes the impact of this situation on our services.

Please note that because the situation is changing rapidly, and the government makes regular announcements about new measures, the table below may change. We are making every effort to comply with public health guidelines at all times and to adapt to them as best we can. 

* The schedule for administrative services remains the same as usual, but they are closed between noon and 1 p.m.

Starting Tuesday, January 12, the study areas will be open to students. To have access to these spaces, students must reserve a spot within a maximum of 24 hours by calling 450 466-3910. To allow as many students as possible to take advantage of this service, there will be a 2-hour limit per session. They must present their student card upon arrival. In a continuing effort to combat the spread of COVID-19, the City of Saint-Lambert is nevertheless asking students to use these study areas only if they have no other option.

To comply with the 8 p.m. curfew, the library will close no later than 7 p.m. Until February 8, the schedule will be as follows: Monday and Tuesday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Wednesday and Thursday, noon to 7 p.m., and Friday and Saturday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Hockey is permitted only with members of the same household. It will therefore be forbidden to organize a game of hockey with people who do not live at the same address as you.
