COVID-19 Information and Updates

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:

  1. 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.
  2. Strathmere Lodge: The province has now mandated that Indoor Resident Visits can re-commence in long term care homes effective July 22, 2020, with pandemic safety protocols in place. For more information on resident visits, please refer to the Strathmere Lodge webpage, or call The Lodge at 519-245-2520, ext. 6226.

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.
