West Grey Police Service fielded a number of calls this past week that involved educating the public about the provisions of the Emergency Management & Civil Protection Act. It is important to note the distinction between the measures covered under the Act and the guidelines suggested by government and health officials. We thank our community residents for abiding by both the measures under the Act and the social distancing guidelines that are helping our area avoid the onslaught of COVID 19 cases seen in some areas.
Stay safe and stay well everyone.
