The County of Haliburton has declared an end to the state of emergency associated with the COVID-19 pandemic at the upper-tier level.
“The County of Haliburton is ending this declaration as we no longer require the operational flexibility it provides,” Haliburton County Warden Liz Danielsen said in a press release. “While we are optimistic the worst of the COVID-19 pandemic is behind us, we encourage our community to remain vigilant in following public health guidelines. We encourage everyone who is able to get a vaccine to do so at your earliest convenience.”
The release specified that the county will continue to follow provincial recommendation regarding pandemic response.
The county and most of its lower-tier townships declared a state of emergency associated with the pandemic on March 17, 2020. As of press time, the Township of Minden Hills had also lifted its state of emergency.
