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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
2022-03-09 | Situation update
Following recent government announcements, starting March 12, the vaccination passport will no longer be required to enter municipal buildings, and public places will be able to reopen at 100% capacity. Thanks to the relaxation of measures, you will therefore no longer be required to register for activities such as public skating and swimming at the recreation centre.
Mask or face covering
Wearing a mask or face covering is strongly recommended for indoor sports activities. It may be removed only if it causes significant discomfort during the practice of the activity (e.g., respiratory discomfort due to the intensity of the activity, or for a safety related issue, such as wearing a helmet that prevents the mask from being put on or removed), or if it does not provide significant protection, for example in sports where there is a large distance between players (e.g., badminton).

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.

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!
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.
The COVID-19 vaccination campaign is now ongoing.
