As of April 1, 2020, Manitoba ordered, under section 67 of The Public Health Act, all non-essential services to be temporarily shut down in order to slow the spread and flatten the curve of COVID-19. The schedule deems pesticide applicators and exterminators as an essential service.
This means that we, Gilles Lambert Pest Control Services, will continue to maintain our commitment to our clients and communities during these trying times. COVID-19 has brought a lot of stress and uncertainty to Manitobans. We have always taken pride in providing relief in stressful situations and are glad that we can continue to be there for the people who count on us the most.
The services that we provide play a large role in the sanitation of an establishment. Whether that may be a home, a restaurant, or an industrial building, we recognize the damage that could potentially be done by not resolving pest issues as they arise.
Our employees are putting themselves at risk in order to keep other essential service providers afloat, such as in the food industries. We are put at ease with the comfort of knowing that we continue to provide support to the businesses and homeowners that have trusted us for more than 15 years.
Stay safe and well.
