April 9 2020 – Easter Updates – COVID19

Hello LCDS Families & Stakeholders,
With Easter upon us we know this will be a difficult and somewhat strange weekend for many of us. Easter is usually a time for celebration, reflection, family, friends and food. It can still be that, but in a very different way.
Please see attached some resource documents for you, your family and your friends:
I want to assure that our LCDS Management Team and Employees are working around-the-clock to ensure your loved ones are cared for, provided for and safe. We will be thinking of you a bit more this weekend.
Thanks everyone – have great Easter Weekend.
We got this!

April 7, 2020 – Lambton County Makers Against COVID – Updates

Hello everyone,

We hope you and your families are safe and well…

This afternoon the EMT will be dropped off some limited COVID-19 supplies to all locations and picked up excess stock. This will put us in a position to redistribute supplies to locations when needed and in a timely fashion.

Access to all supplies are limited and should be used as directed at all times. If you know anyone in your network of contacts that is able to provide surgical masks, gowns, thermometers, alcohol wipes or hand sanitizer please let us know.

We have formed an excellent relationship with the volunteer group Lambton County Makers Against COVID-19. This phenomenal group is working to provide face shields and home made surgical style masks for the agency. The group has provided PPE equipment to Lambton Public Health, Central-Lambton Family Health Team, Bluewater Health and many local non-profits.

The Lambton County Makers Against COVID-19 group runs strictly on donations. They are not paid and have families and jobs of their own. If you or anyone you know is willing and able to donate please email [email protected] with a subject line of DONATION and they can respond accordingly.

We have also attached the updated Lambton County Social Services Resource Listing for you.
