Update # 39 – Response to COVID-19 – West Lincoln is Staying the Course and Consistent with Provincial and Public Health Guidelines

West Lincoln, Ont. – April 13, 2021

Since the Township’s Emergency Operations Centre (EOC) was activated on March 21, 2020 to respond to the COVID-19 Global Pandemic, West Lincoln has fully implemented all Provincial and Public Health guidelines and clearly communicated any changes to protocols or new practices. The EOC is a non-political Central Command and Control facility for an emergency response, where implementation of strategic level management functions are coordinated to ensure the continuity of Township operations.  To access all COVID-19 and emergency response information, please visit the COVID-19 Information and Updates portal on the Township’s website.

On Monday, April 12th, 2021 Council appointed Ward 3 Councillor Cheryl Ganann, to be the Council liaison on the Township’s EOC for the remainder of this term of Council.

The Township of West Lincoln fully supports the concepts of listening to the science and following the direction provided by our Public Health experts, regarding the efforts of the Government of Ontario and the Region of Niagara, to neutralize and control the rising number of COVID-19 cases.

The West Lincoln Community Centre will proudly be hosting a week long Niagara Public Health Vaccination Clinic from May 3rd, 2021 through May 8th, 2021.

Lastly, we thank our residents, who have made the choice to protect their family, friends and neighbours by staying home, wearing a mask and becoming vaccinated.
