Re-Opening Announcements

Phases of Re-Opening

The Town of Lincoln continues to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic and the provincial Emergency Order remains in effect. While enforcement and education around restrictions will continue, the Town is planning and preparing for a lessening of restrictions. A phased approach focus on recovery has begun with the development of an internal Town of Lincoln recovery team. 

Information and expanded frameworks have been developed and released by the Province of Ontario, with details still to be assessed and shared as it relates to overall operations for government and business. Read Ontario's framework for reopening the province on their website.
