On Tuesday March 1, 2022, the County of Brant ended the declared state of emergency due to COVID-19 that was put in place on March 19, 2020.
“It has been a long and difficult two years,” said Mayor David Bailey. “After reviewing the emergency criteria, we feel confident that the worst of the pandemic is behind us and we can move forward in a cautious manner. I am incredibly grateful to the citizens and businesses within the community. You have demonstrated incredible resilience and great care for your fellow neighbours and the healthcare system. Your kindness and compassion carried us through very uncertain times.”
On the guidance of the Province of Ontario, the County of Brant will lift the Proof of Vaccination requirement to enter community centres. As well, capacity limits within the community centres will return to normal starting Tuesday, March 1, 2022.
