The Municipality of Trent Lakes Lifts Local State of Emergency in line with the Province
Trent Lakes – Today the Municipality of Trent Lakes lifted the local State of Emergency that has been in place since March 24, 2020.The decision is based on the Ontario Government’s Provincial State of Emergency lapsing July 24th, 2020.
Ontario has extended emergency orders currently in force until July 29. This will ensure the Province maintains the necessary flexibility to protect public health and safety as more businesses reopen and people go back to work.
The Municipality of Trent Lakes will continue to support, educate and enforce Orders in place from the Province and the Peterborough Health Unit.
Residents are asked to continue following all health precautions and Orders, including wearing a mask or face covering as prescribed by the Peterborough Health Unit, maintaining physical distancing, practicing vigilant hand hygiene and staying home if you’re ill.
Mayor Clarkson offered the following message:
“Trent Lakes feels that the coronavirus is sufficiently under control to discontinue the declared State of Emergency. This is not to be confused with, “we no longer have concerns where this coronavirus is involved”. Far from it!
We strongly suggest everyone continue to take all recommended precautions, hand washing and social distancing as well as the Peterborough Public Heath newly legislated mandatory masks in commercial establishments. We have been very lucky here and we need to not get lazy. New outbreaks happen everywhere. Let’s be the statistic that we can brag about. Be safe and have a happy rest of the summer.
I would remiss if I didn’t compliment our excellent inside and outside staff who kept the ship operating throughout this pandemic.”
