The County of Essex has terminated the Declaration of Emergency enacted by Warden Gary McNamara on March 22nd, 2020, in response to COVID-19 and rising water levels in the Great Lakes basin.

“While we are no longer in a declared state of emergency in response to the pandemic, it is imperative that none of us let our guard down because COVID-19 continues to circulate in our community, and it is likely to do so for the foreseeable future,” said McNamara.

“Please, continue to make smart, selfless decisions when it comes to protecting yourself and your community from the transmission of COVID-19 and please continue to support the local businesses who have struggled beneath the burden of pandemic restrictions.”

The Declaration of Emergency ended at 9am today, and the Essex County Civic Centre will reopen to the public on Monday, May 2nd, 2022.
