West Grey Police Service wishes to remind the public to practise proper social distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic. The weather is improving and we all want to enjoy the outdoors but gatherings must be limited to five people and there is an expectation that we maintain a distance of two metres away from anyone who does not reside with us. It can’t be stressed enough that there is no cure nor vaccine for the Corona virus and as such we are all at risk of contracting it and spreading it if we do not abide by the handwashing and social distancing measures put in place to protect us. Stay safe, stay well.
