    The resumption of work operations on construction sites is part of the Government of Québec’s plan to reopen various sectors of the economy during the COVID-19 pandemic. This resumption is a clear sign of the city’s economic recovery plan, and it is being implemented in compliance with the preventive measures recommended by Québec’s public health authorities.

    The municipal administration will implement measures on construction sites in order to prevent the risk of contamination among workers and people on or near work sites. The city wishes to remind residents that preventing infection is a responsibility shared by everyone.

    The city is monitoring the situation as it evolves and ensuring that the measures recommended by the Direction régionale de santé publique are being applied.

    As part of these work operations, it is possible that a worker may need to enter your building. If this is the case, additional precautions will be taken, as recommended by Québec’s public health authorities.

    The worker in question will make sure to apply hygiene and physical distancing measures as well as use the equipment recommended by public health authorities. If an occupant of your building is infected by COVID-19 or presents with symptoms of the disease, you are required to contact us as soon as possible so that we can postpone the visit. During a visit, you will be asked to answer a questionnaire on your health condition.
