The Sarnia Primary Control Group (SPCG) met today regarding developments related to COVID-19.
The Ontario Government, in consultation with the Chief Medical Officer of Health and the Public Health Measures Table, reduced the number of people permitted to attend unmonitored and private social gatherings across the entire Province.
The new limit on the number of people allowed to attend an unmonitored private social gathering across the province is:
- 10 people at an indoor event or gathering (previous limit of 50); or
- 25 people at an outdoor event or gathering (previous limit of 100).

Citizens are urged to remain vigilant and take precautions when visiting public spaces, and on public transit, to protect everyone in the community from transmission of COVID-19.
