Municipal buildings changing how they do business due to COVID-19


If you need to do business at Petrolia’s Victoria Hall, you’ll have to do it by phone.

The Town of Petrolia, like many Lambton County municipalities, is limiting the risk of spreading the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) by closing its doors to the public.

Laurissa Ellsworth, director of marketing and communications, says staff will continue to be at work, but the public is asked to call or use email for business instead of in person visits.

Plympton-Wyoming, St. Clair, Enniskillen and Oil Springs are doing the same thing.

Brooke-Alvinston and Dawn-Euphemia are still open to the public but are asking residents to keep a minimum of six feet between people in the office and to stay home if they have travelled out of the country in the last 14 days or are feeling ill.

All of the community centres and arenas have been close under the provincial state of emergency.
