COVID-19: Mayors Message

Council and I continue to deal with the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. While some of the changes are dramatic, we can assure you they are in the best interests of our community and ensure the continued health and safety of our citizens and staff.

Council and I urge residents to follow the stay-at-home recommendations from the Alberta Public Health. Please avoid close contact with other people, including household members but especially seniors and people with chronic conditions or compromised immune systems. It is everyone’s responsibility to do what they can to limit the spread of the virus. Continue to wash your hands, maintain appropriate distance from each other, but remain calm and remember we are in this together.

For guidance on what individuals can do to reduce their risk of contracting the virus, or what to do if they display symptoms, please visit the COVID-19 update for Albertans.
