The Sarnia Primary Control Group (SPCG) met via teleconference on July 7, 2020, at 9:30 a.m. regarding developments related to the COVID-19.

Today, the Ontario government introduced proposed legislation that, if passed, would give the province the necessary flexibility to address the ongoing risks and effects of the COVID-19 outbreak. The proposed legislation is part of the government’s plan for the continued safe and gradual reopening of the province once the declaration of emergency ends.
