Starting today (Monday, July 19), City municipal buildings will reopen to the public. This includes City Hall and the Community Operations building.
The July 20 meeting of Council will also be open to the public. Those who wish to attend will be offered seating in the lobby at City Hall and can watch the meeting on the TV screens provided.
People who would like to enter any municipal buildings are asked to:
- Be COVID-19 symptom-free
- Sanitize their hands upon entry
- Be screened for fever by a contactless scanner
- Continue practicing physical distancing
Visitors can also expect to see City staff behind plexiglass shields and staff may choose to continue wearing masks when meeting with the public. Masks are recommended for visitors to City buildings, but they are not mandatory.
The front doors of the Chestermere RCMP detachment will remain closed. Administration staff will be in the building and service will continue but visitors are asked to call 403-204-8777 and press “0” to speak with staff for assistance before coming to the detachment in person.
Chestermere Fire Services will also require members of the public to call (403) 272-9878 or ring the front door bell before being admitted to the building. Regular facility tours are expected to resume in the first week of September.
Anyone who does not need to visit a City facility in person is encouraged to continue conducting business with the City over the phone, by email, or by using online services at www.chestermere.ca.
