The health and well-being of Middlesex County staff, residents, and visitors is our number one priority. We are taking precautions to protect all clients, staff and the public. Using an abundance of caution to ensure that staff are able to continue to deliver services and to protect the public in the wake of COVID-19, the Middlesex County Administration Building located at 399 Ridout Street North in London, ON. is closed to the public effective Monday, March 16, 2020 until further notice.
In addition to the County Administration Building Closure, Middlesex County has also taken the following actions:
- All Library facilities will be closed to the public until further notice. Please review the Middlesex County Library’s website here for any new information.
- Strathmere Lodge as directed by the Ministry of Health and Long-term Care is restricting visitors to those who are essential visitors in an effort to combat the threat posed by COVID-19. The Ministry is identifying essential visitors as those who have a resident who is dying or very ill. These visitors must continue to be actively screened prior to entering the Home.
Middlesex County service delivery will continue. Relying on advice from experts in risk management and loss prevention, we are committed to doing our part to help slow the spread of this virus. When possible, we encourage social distancing, as recommended by the Public Health Agency of Canada, and suggest that contacting us via phone, email or online is preferred during this time.
Middlesex County staff are actively monitoring the COVID-19 situation and will provide updates as necessary. As new information becomes available that affects Middlesex County facilities and services, it will be posted here.
