At 11:41 a.m. on Friday, March 4, 2022, Mayor Bradley terminated the City of Sarnia’s State of Emergency related to the COVID-19 pandemic and in accordance with the Emergency Management and Civil Protection Act. The decision was made in consultation with the City of Sarnia’s Primary Control Group. The City’s State of Emergency was previously declared on March 18, 2020.

The City believes it is now positioned to respond to COVID-19 within normal resources and processes. The City will continue to monitor the pandemic’s impact on City operations and is prepared to escalate its response, should situations change locally.

While the City’s emergency declaration is ending, COVID-19 remains and is expected to be with us long-term. Residents are advised to continue following public health interventions that are in place at the federal, provincial, and local levels.

The end of the City’s state of emergency on March 4 is aligned with the County of Lambton and Point Edward, which are both within the Lambton Public Health service delivery area.
