The Sarnia Primary Control Group (SPCG) met today regarding developments related to COVID-19.

The holiday season will look different this year, but there are still ways to stay socially connected. To help reduce the spread of COVID-19, plan lower risk activities such as:

  • Indoor celebrations with members of your household
  • Virtual celebrations
  • Doorstep gift exchanges
  • Outdoor celebrations in open spaces with room for 2-metres of physical distance
