Lincoln's Response to Coronavirus

Lincoln's Response to Coronavirus 

The Town of Lincoln has an operational guideline for appropriately managing a response to any emergency situation that occurs within, or causes an impact within, its municipal boundaries. This plan has been designed to be flexible and adaptable to any emergency or crisis situation that may affect Lincoln and meets the requirements for a municipal emergency response plan in accordance with provincial legislation.

Part of the Town's emergency plan is the establishment of the Emergency Operations Centre (EOC) to lead the planning, response & recovery of an incident. 

For the Coronavirus pandemic, the Town partially activated the EOC on March 14, 2020, with the Emergency Operations Management Control Group meeting daily to assess, review and respond to the emerging information. This group meets to put the necessary measures in place, whether relating to workplace practices, service disruptions or timely information for our community.

All decisions are made with the priority of the health and safety of our citizens and our staff. 

Our decisions are guided by data and facts, and through the direction of Niagara Region Public Health. The community response is being led by Niagara Region Public Health and allied health agencies.
