Mayor confirms ECG meeting called to discuss COVID-19 planning

 The Town of Saugeen Shores assembled the Emergency Control Group (ECG) on Wednesday, March 18 to review protocols in place to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“The ECG gathered to review the actions taken to date in response to COVID-19, as well as to discuss critical service delivery moving forward,” said Mayor Luke Charbonneau. “At this time, most Town services are being delivered; however, municipal facilities are closed to the public.”

“Existing emergency planning measures are in place to ensure continued delivery of critical services. The health of our community remains our top priority, and we are prepared to deliver services while also protecting our employees and residents,” added the Mayor.

The ECG will meet on a regular basis to review actions taken and to plan for next steps based on information received from public health officials and other expert stakeholders. As well, senior Town staff have been meeting on a daily basis, putting protocols in place to ensure services can be provided with as little interruption as possible.
