Update #19 - West Lincoln Response to COVID-19 - Township providing Face Shields to Local Businesses in Partnership with the West Lincoln Chamber of Commerce

West Lincoln, Ont. – June 3, 2020

The Township of West Lincoln has opted into the face shield support program for local businesses as part of our economic recovery plan.  The intent is to help businesses open and provide a level of safety and well-being for both employees and customers.  Produced by Wood Workers Unite, the shields are easy to use and are comfortable to wear.

The Township has procured enough face shields to supply each local business with two face shields.  Our partner on this initiative, the West Lincoln Chamber of Commerce, will be helping us get the face shields into the hands of local businesses.   They are providing curbside service this coming Friday, June 5th from 10am until 2pm or Saturday June 6th from 10am until noon at the Train Station at 288 Station Street, Smithville. For questions about the pick-up process, please email

If a business requires more than the two free face shields they are available to purchase at $7.00 each.  To order, please contact email the West Lincoln Chamber of Commerce with the amount you require by Monday June 8, 2020.

Mayor Bylsma stated,

“As part of our local recovery plan, the Township is joining with our neighbours in Grimsby and Lincoln in supplying our local businesses with some face shields.  We are lucky to have a good partner in the West Lincoln Chamber of Commerce who will be distributing them via curbside service at their local office.  It is through strong partnerships that we will emerge out from under this pandemic”
