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.

Vaccination campaign

On February 23, 2021, the Quebec government announced the start of the COVID-19 vaccination campaign for the general population, beginning with people 85 years of age or older.

These people must make an appointment online at Québec.ca/vaccinCOVID, which is the easiest and fastest way to make an appointment. Anyone who does not have access to the Internet or who has difficulty using it can call 1 877 644-4545 for support.

To learn more about the vaccination campaign, visit the page COVID-19 vaccination campaign on the Quebec government’s website.

Municipal measures

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

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.

At its press briefing on March 16, the government announced the loosening of certain restrictions taking effect in the next few weeks. 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.
