  • COVID-19 Safety Measures in Residence

    Lambton College residence will continue to operate under the direction and suggestions of Lambton Public Health and continue with the same safety measures and protocol that have been carried out through the provincial wide lockdown. This includes:

    • mandatory masks within the building;
    • no guest policy;
    • single occupancy;
    • physical distancing;
    • closed common spaces; and
    • enhanced cleaning protocol to ensure the health and safety of our students.

    The college will continue to run our cafeteria and food services operations to provide all students access to meal and snacks while utilizing their meal plan dollars.

    As it stands, the effects of the lockdown on our college operations are minimal. We will continue to follow all provisions and regulations as set out by the government, as well as our own risk mitigation measures, which include increased cleaning protocol, campus screening, sanitizing, social distancing and mandatory masking as set out on our COVID Safety Protocols page.
