April 6, 2022 10:54am
Municipalities and Perth County are exiting their respective States of Emergency.
As of 9 a.m. Wednesday, Perth County, North Perth, Perth East and West Perth exited their States of Emergency which were first declared in April of 2020 because of the pandemic.
The emergency designation allows a municipality or county to rapidly respond to a crisis and provide necessary services during unforeseen events.
While officials are thanking residents for their efforts to help stop the spread of COVID-19, they note the virus is still active in communities and residents should still follow public health guidelines including masking and social distancing when needed or appropriate.
