A Message from the Regional Director of Emergency Management, Trevor Kotowich
The Incident Management Team along with our Region’s Chief Administrative Officer’s (CAO’s) continue to meet and address any challenges related to COVID-19. Vital to our work is the involvement of our Emergency Social Services (ESS) counterparts, headed up by our Directors of FCSS, along with our Region’s Safety Director, Liaison Officer and Public Information Officer.
Concerning the essential services business list, if a business is not listed here, https://www.alberta.ca/essential-services.aspx as an essential service, it can still continue to operate if:
- It is not specifically prohibited from offering services in a location accessible to the
- The business doesn’t fall under previous business, workplace and facility
For those residents who are returning from travel, it is absolutely mandatory that you follow the 14-day self-isolation. This is NOT a suggestion, this is mandatory. This also means no visitors to your home.
With Easter approaching, I know this will be a difficult time for many. I cannot stress enough to you all that we need to continue to be as vigilante as we have been the last 4 weeks. Do NOT gather, and continue to maintain the physical distancing we have been doing for the past while. The order from the Chief Medical Officer of Health is clear. You MUST practice safe physical distancing.
Once again I want to thank you all for your continued cooperation as we maneuver our way through this crisis. Be safe and stay healthy.
