COVID-19

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. The table below shows the measures currently in effect in Saint-Lambert in compliance with the directives issued by Public Health.

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.

2022-01-14 | Situation update
Given the high number of cases of COVID-19 in the Montérégie region and due to recent outbreaks within the municipal team, the Ville de Saint-Lambert has decided to postpone the resumption of activities carried out individually and activities offered by recognized organizations in pairs, or with individuals from the same household, until January 24.

Arena, pool and recreation centre
Starting January 24, public skating, swimming, badminton and pickeball will once again be offered, by reservation. The recreation centre will also be open by reservation for activities carried out individually or in pairs, or with individuals from the same household offered by recognized organizations.

The vaccination passport (for people aged 13 and up) will be required for participants in activities. No visitors or spectators will be allowed inside the recreation centre, the arena or the pool. The only exception is for people coming to the service desk at the recreation centre.

Services offered by appointment
In order to accommodate residents until the reopening of City Hall on January 24, 2022, certain services will be offered by appointment. Residents wishing to obtain a free “Accès 65 HORS POINTE” transit pass for seniors or a certificate of life are invited to make an appointment by calling (450) 672-4444.

For other services, residents can reach the usual personnel directly by email or phone, or by contacting the reception desk at 450-672-4444 or info.citoyens@saint-lambert.ca.   

Reminder about other measures
The winter session of recreational activities, which was slated to begin the week of January 10, has been postponed to a later date. The library’s services are being maintained, but capacity is reduced, and services are limited to document loans. Outdoor activities, such as skating and cross-country skiing, are still permitted.

Vaccination passport
The vaccination passport ( for people aged 13 and up) is required for visitors, spectators and accompanying persons as well as for participants in activities taking place at the recreation centre, the arena and the pool. The only exception is for people coming to the service desk at the recreation centre.

Due to this measure, we ask that participants show up at least 15 minutes in advance and have their vaccine passport and photo ID on hand.

Children aged 12 years and under may have to show ID (health insurance card or student card) to validate their age.

For complete details about the passport and how it works, please visit the Quebec government's website.

Ideas for activities to do

Keeping occupied when just about everything is closed is a challenge for both young and old. The City's usually plentiful and varied range of activities has been scaled back to comply with government guidelines. However, some activities can still be enjoyed in compliance with the health measures in effect, and we invite you to take advantage of them to have some fun and break the monotony of our lockdown situation.

Library

The library remains open to borrow documents. In addition, the library's online catalogue offers a wide range of digital resources to provide you with hours of enjoyment without leaving the comfort of your home:

  • Over 3,200 digital books and audiobooks, in both French and English, for the entire family;
  • Databases;
  • Television and radio documentaries, news reports, archival documents;
  • Quebec, Canadian and foreign newspapers and magazines;
  • Online dictionaries and encyclopedias;
  • More than 600 online courses (languages, arts, multimedia, office automation and much more);
  • Educational resources for children;
  • And much more!

We also invite you to discover the QuoiLire.ca platform, which offers a personalized reading suggestion service for books in French or English! Users can fill out an online form to receive personalized suggestions based on their literary tastes and preferences!

Outdoor rinks maintenance and chalets schedule
As in many sectors, the Ville de Saint-Lambert is experiencing a shortage of personnel due to COVID-19. It is unfortunately unable to maintain its outdoor rinks as frequently as usual. It is therefore possible that the rink you go to has not yet been cleared of snow. We suggest you bring a shovel with you just in case; you’ll get a double-dose of physical activity by skating while shovelling!

Chalets schedule
Also owing to staff shortages, we cannot guarantee that the chalets will be open according to their regular schedule. You can still enjoy skating on the rinks, but you will have to change into your skates outside.

Vaccination campaign

The COVID-19 vaccination campaign is now ongoing.

To take an appointment, citizens must visit Québec.ca/vaccinCOVID. 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.
