Township of Tiny terminates emergency declaration

Residents urged to remain vigilant

The State of Emergency in Tiny Township has been lifted.

The declaration was made March 17 as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Efforts to straighten the COVID-19 curve were a contributing factor in the decision to end the emergency. The work of township staff to carry out essential services and develop creative ways of carrying out programming was also taken into account.

Mayor George Cornell reminds residents the virus remains a threat to the well-being of the community, “We are not out of the woods yet. Stay vigilant in your efforts to control the spread of COVID-19. Help protect your family, friends and neighbours by practising physical distancing, wearing a face covering, getting tested if you think you may have been exposed to COVID-19, and isolating at home if you are sick or exhibiting symptoms.”

The Township offices remain closed.

Tiny’s Municipal Emergency Control Group will continue to meet regularly and monitor the evolving pandemic situation.
