COVID-19: Latest Updates

As of October 1, 2020, the Ville de Châteauguay is one of the 82 municipalities forming the Communauté métropolitaine de Montréal (CMM), included the red zone, Level 4-Maximum Alert, until further notice.

Moving to the maximum alert level means that some of our operations need to be revised to control the spread of the virus and comply with Public Health Authority guidelines.

Since October 1st, the following measures will be implemented:

  • Closure of municipal buildings to the public except for the police station. Operations will continue and employees will provide a phone and online service during normal opening hours.
  • Only exceptional cases will be handled on appointment.
  • Closure of the library building and continued services: contactless pickup, delivery (residences for seniors, vulnerable individuals) and online services during normal opening hours.
  • All our cultural courses and workshops, including dance workshops, are suspended until furhter
  • Relocating some teams to ensure better social distancing at work. 

Finally, Ville de Châteauguay wishes to remind residents to take seriously all guidelines issued by government on the pandemic and asks everyone to comply. Get the latest updates by visiting the city’s website or Facebook page.

  • It is important, for the sake of the environment and the safety of others, to dispose of used gloves and masks in garbage cans, ideally knotted bags, in order to minimize the risk of spreading COVID-19 and, of course, to maintain a pleasant environment for everyone.
  • We would like to remind you that wipes, of any kind, must not be disposed of in the toilet. In the current context, we are seeing an increase in the consumption of wipes and many of them end up in the toilet and block out the pumps. The wastewater management team is asking for your collaboration to prevent a situation that could affect the proper water treatment. At all time, please, put your wipes in the trash!
