Message from the Mayor
This week, the Provincial Government announced their planning framework for
Reopening Ontario after COVID-19
. This news is encouraging! We are listening to medical experts and we are on our way to the road of recovery. I appreciate that we would all like to know exactly when and what things will be reopened, but for now we simply need to stay the course by washing our hands, practicing physical distancing and restricting social gatherings so that positive changes can come sooner than later. The work we are doing must continue.
The nightly news and social media are reporting all changes to the provincial emergency orders as they are made. Our
Lambton Shores COVID-19 Information Hub
will continue to share this information as well, and I will certainly do my best to share how these changes will affect our Lambton Shores lifestyle. Stay tuned!
While we wait for restrictions to lift, our local businesses need us now more than ever! I know many of you are stepping up to support local and I am grateful to live in a community that helps one another when times are tough. Thank you!
There is more than one way to support local businesses during COVID-19. For example you can purchase curbside or delivery items where available, buy gift cards to use at a later date or simply share local business posts on your social media or with friends and family. Every little bit helps!
Did you know that Wednesdays have been declared Canada’s Take-Out Day? Restaurants have been particularly devastated by the COVID-19 restrictions. So why not give your stove a rest tonight, and celebrate our restaurant industry as a community and order dinner from one of our many local establishments.
The Grand Bend & Area Chamber of Commerce wants to make it even easier for you to order from your favourite restaurant tonight or any night. They have recently developed
, a website that can tell you what local restaurants are open and where you can find more information on their menus and hours. This is a valuable resource – so be sure to share it with your friends and family! And if you are a local business owner interested in having your information shared on the website (for free!) you

In the meantime, stay healthy, safe and positive!
