LAST UPDATED ON March 4, 2022

PLYMPTON-WYOMING, March 4th 2022 – The Town of Plympton-Wyoming has officially lifted the Declaration of Emergency, effective 2:00 p.m. on Friday, March 4th 2022. The state of emergency was declared on March 18th 2020 in response to the global pandemic.  The Province of Ontario lifted its declaration of emergency on June 9th 2021.  

The decision to lift the emergency declaration was made by Plympton-Wyoming Mayor Lonny Napper; following the repeal by the County of Lambton and announcement by Warden Marriott.

With key public health indicators continuing to improve, and with COVID-19 protocols mandated by the Province of Ontario and Lambton Public Health now in place, the Emergency Operations Control Group determined the conditions presented in the original emergency declaration are no longer required at this time.

The Town of Plympton-Wyoming is now confident they have the resources and practices in place to respond to any further COVID-19 matters. The Town of Plympton-Wyoming will continue to follow the regulations mandated by the province and local public health unit. Should the situation change, the Municipality can reinstate a declaration of emergency.

Messages from the Town

At approximately 1:30 p.m. on Wednesday, March 18, 2020, the Town of Plympton-Wyoming declared a State of Emergency in accordance with the Emergency Management and Civil Protection Act.

 The Emergency for the entire geographical area of Plympton-Wyoming was declared for the following reasons:

  • To raise public awareness regarding the gravity of the current pandemic situation,
  • To protect volunteers that are called to assist,
  • To preserve the rights of the county for future compensation should it become available; and
  • To ensure the organization can quickly respond to other unforeseen events should they arise.

As Coronaviruses are spread mainly from person to person through close contact, the Town of Plympton-Wyoming encourages residents to use the Town's online services for payment of tax and water bills, if possible. There is also has an outdoor drop box just outside of the door of the Town Office, for your convenience for submission of non-cash payments.

Take these everyday steps to reduce exposure to the virus and protect your health:

  • Practice social distancing
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water or alcohol based hand sanitizer
  • Sneeze and cough into your sleeve
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth
  • Avoid contact with people who are sick
