After 26 months of emergency response to the COVID-19 pandemic Lambton Public Health has begun a staged return to normal operations.

Shifting staff to other public health priorities is now possible for a number of reasons, the health unit said.

More than 90% of Sarnia-Lambton’s population aged 60+ have had at least two doses of vaccine, which has lowered the number of hospitalizations and eased pressure on the healthcare system.

Warmer weather, with more people outside, has reduced the risk of transmission, and no new variants of concern have been identified, the health unit said.

As part of the shift, pandemic numbers will be updated once weekly on Wednesday mornings.
