What's New This Week - June 02, 2022

NEWS RELEASE:  Lambton Public Health Exiting Emergency Response Mode Wednesday, June 1, 2022 Point Edward, ON

Lambton Public Health (LPH) is announcing that effective Wednesday, June 1 it is exiting Emergency Response Mode and will begin a staged return to normal operations. After 26 months of emergency operations, this transition will allow for LPH staff to begin to readjust focus to other public health priorities, while also ensuring staff are able to quickly pivot back to pandemic response mode if outbreaks and cases increase, or additional immunization efforts are required. “The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted everyone significantly, and the demands on our public health workforce has been no different,” said Andrew Taylor, General Manager, Public Health Services Division for the County of Lambton. “Their flexibility and efforts in responding to the community’s needs as they arose throughout the pandemic has been greatly appreciated and we look forward to slowly refocusing our efforts on providing our core services.” This staged return to core services is made possible by a variety of factors, including other community partners shifting back to pre-pandemic operations.
