AMENDED SECTION 22 EMERGENCY ORDER

WELLINGTON COUNTY, ON – In response to feedback from the community and our many partners throughout the region, Dr. Mercer has provided clarification to her Class Order under Section 22 of the Health Protection and Promotion Act.

In clarifying the language, the intent is to make it easier for both members of the public and commercial establishments to follow the order and for us, as a region, to move into Phase 2 safely.

Warden Linton has amended his order, made under the County’s State of Emergency, to align with Dr. Mercer’s. The amended order is attached.
