There is one pop-up clinic this week and it is Friday at the Flesherton Arena from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m.

Meanwhile Brockton has lifted its state of emergency.

Mayor Chris Peabody officially lifted the order as of 4 p.m. Wednesday.

Declaring an emergency under the Emergency Management and Civil Protection Act gives municipal governments access to tools, funding, and resources to protect residents’ health and safety.

“The residents and businesses of Brockton have been diligent in response to the challenges we have faced in the community as a result of the pandemic. Locally we see a low rate of new cases and the vaccination rates continue to rise which allows us to consider this next step. It is time for our community to move forward adapting to living with COVID-19 and our new normal. This does not mean the pandemic is over. This is a step towards re-opening our community as our staff continue to adapt and deliver essential services to the community,” said Peabody.

While the impact of COVID-19 is stabilizing, the Brockton Municipal Emergency Control Group will continue to meet regularly and make changes if needed.

A local vaccine clinic is being held at the Walkerton Fire Hall on Napier Street on Monday, September 20th from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m.

Wellington-Dufferin-Guelph Public health reported 35 active cases in Wellington County as of Wednesday.

The two dose rate for the 12 and older population has reached 80.6 percent. The one dose rate is 85.8 percent.
