West Lincoln, Ont. January 8, 2021       

West Lincoln COVID cases have been steadily increasing since the end of 2020 and we are asking the community to do their part in stopping the spread of the virus.  

For up to date information on local case activity check:  

Plans for vaccination are under development and until we are advised otherwise, residents are reminded to follow Public Health Guidelines to contain the spread of the virus:

  • Stay home -except for grocery shopping and essential work
  • Wear a mask
  • Wash your hands
  • Maintain social distancing of a minimum of 2m or 6 feet
  • Keep to your household and refrain from social gatherings

The Township’s administrative offices are closed consistent with the Provincial Lockdown, however staff are able to help with issues.   Before you come to the office, call 905-905-957-3346 or check our website at

Mayor Dave Bylsma stated, “I appeal for residents to be patient and practice public health protocols. We can’t pinpoint a reason but it could be laxity over Christmas, seasonal darkness or the notice of a vaccine on the horizon that our numbers of cases here in West Lincoln have jumped.  To be clear, the availability and process of the vaccine distribution is still in development and supply and logistics dictate vulnerable and frontline citizens go first.  While we patiently wait let’s continue to safely remember our neighbours and elderly.”
