Transcript: 

Hello Chestermere. 

On November 12, the Premier and Dr. Hinshaw updated the Province with new measures to stop the spread of COVID-19 in Alberta’s metropolitan areas. These measures do apply to Chestermere and include: 

  • putting a hold on all indoor recreational sports, performance and fitness programs for the next two weeks
  • closing restaurants by 11 and stopping alcohol service at 10pm; and 
  • asking all residents to avoid in home social gatherings.

In addition, the Province has strongly recommended wearing masks in all indoor public places, to limit office personnel to essential workers only, and limiting faith gatherings to one third of their physical occupancy.

These measures are going to impact our businesses, our sports groups, our faith communities, and our local organizations. 

The hope is that these measures can just be temporary. But that is up to each one of us. 

If we cannot get this under control, we could be going back to a lock down and the provincial measures could be a lot more stringent. 

So let this be our wakeup call. 

Please, for the next two weeks, let’s stop the spread together. Avoid in-home gatherings. Stay home when you can. Wear a mask when you cannot. 

Given our current Enhanced Status placed on our community by the Province resulting from our recent spike in COVID cases, on Tues evening our Council will be again revisiting a temporary mandatory mask bylaw.

Finally, I want to say that I have every confidence that we can do this. Earlier this week, our local case numbers were at 87*. Today, they are down to 63. And we’d like to see that continue. Together, we can do it Chestermere. 

Thank you. 

* This was incorrect and should have been 82. Apologies for any inconvenience.
