GREENSTONE – The Municipality of Greenstone has ended its state of emergency.

“While COVID-19 remains a relevant issue that must be handled appropriately, we are now at a point that the state of emergency is no longer required to handle administrative issues," saus Greenstone Mayor Renald Beulieu.

Greenstone has ensured that the spread of COVID-19 is contained, where major outbreaks are becoming fewer.

Although COVID-19 isn’t going away anytime soon, the public is still urged to take precautions when travelling around town and the Northwest.   

The province has lifted proof of vaccinations and mask mandates. However, private businesses and organizations can still choose to continue to ask customers for vaccination proof and to put on a mask before entering the establishment.

Residents of Greenstone are asked to continue to follow basic measures to prevent the spread of illness by practicing hand-washing often and coughing and sneezing into a tissue.

Another preventive measure is to stay home if you are feeling sick.
