Chestermere closes playgrounds; announces Tuesday telephone town hall

Telephone Town Hall

Earlier today, Chestermere learned that there are now 4 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in our community.

“The fact that COVID-19 is here and is growing is very troubling. Please do not gather with those outside of your family. Social distancing continues to be very important. We urge you to stay least 6 feet away from anyone outside of your family. Chestermere, we CAN stop the spread of this disease but we all must take action,” said Mayor Marshall Chalmers.

As another measure to prevent the spread of the disease, Chalmers announced the all city playgrounds are closed until further notice.

“Playground equipment cannot be effectively sanitized between each group who plays there,” says Chalmers. “As such, to cut down on the chances of transmission, we are closing all playgrounds immediately.”

Chalmers explained that parks are still open and families are invited to walk the pathways, kick a ball in the fields, and enjoy the City’s open spaces but recommends that people stay 6 feet away from anyone who does not live in the same household as you.

Chalmers also announced that the Chestermere Emergency Management Agency (CHEMA) will be holding a telephone town hall on Tuesday, March 24 at 10:30 a.m. as an opportunity for residents to hear a live update and ask questions about the ongoing situation.

CHEMA will be calling residents who had a number listed in the Anchor’s local directory letting them know that the telephone town hall will be happening, and calling again when it is about to start. All they need to do is stay on the line to be connected.

Residents who are not automatically called or who usually use a cell phone can call 1-877-229-8493 and enter the code 119243 at 10:30 on Tuesday morning.
