Statement from Reeve Alvin Hubert

Along with our friends across the Province and around the world we are facing challenging times due to COVID-19. I would like to encourage all citizens to treat this situation seriously and with the utmost respect. For the safety of our families, friends and loved ones – especially our seniors and vulnerable people – please follow the recommendations of Alberta Health Services.

Some easy steps to help prevent the spread of the Coronavirus are as follows:

  • If you are not feeling well, stay home
  • Wash your hands with soap frequently
  • Practice social distancing when in contact with others

I encourage everyone to remember that there are those in our community who are isolated or who may not be able to keep informed with social media or websites. Please consider offering to check the mail or pickup groceries for seniors or anyone needing assistance.

For the safety of the public and our staff we have closed County buildings but our staff are working in order to maintain service levels. Residents and businesses are encouraged to conduct business with the County online or by phone. Council Chambers, in the Administration Building, will be open to the public for Regular Council and Municipal Planning Meetings.

Strict social distancing and hygiene protocols, as outlined by Alberta Health Services (AHS) will be in place and members of the public will be screened at the front door. Council will decide on a course of action for future Council meetings based on the latest information regarding the pandemic. 

Municipal services will continue to be delivered, with alternative delivery options in place for most services and programs. These measures will be in place until further notice.  For up-to-date information please check the Alberta Health Services website, the Government of Alberta website or the local Central Peace Regional Emergency Management website or Facebook page. We will continue to update the public through the County website, Facebook page and Twitter account.

Thank you and stay safe.
