Mayor's Statement on Beach Crowding

Beach Statement

"Over the past few weeks, we have been disappointed that people visiting our beaches have not been following provincial health orders to stay 2 metres apart from others.

Although we have been reminding people to practice distancing at our beaches through signage and enforcement patrols, it hasn’t been enough.

For several weeks, we have been requesting that Alberta Health Services (AHS) provide increased guidance on beaches. Last weekend, we invited representatives from AHS to observe our local situation and help us find solutions.

On Wednesday, we had a collaborative meeting with members from AHS and the Ministry of Health (including Dr. Hinshaw) to discuss some solutions to this problem. They agreed that it is a challenge.

We proposed that they issue clearer guidance on beach usage and limit occupancy at beaches to ensure proper distancing and safe enjoyment for all. They have assured us that they are working on developing next steps. We look forward to seeing their plan and acting on their direction.

The response to the pandemic is led by the Province and we need provincial direction on beach safety. Once we receive that, we look forward to sharing it with you.

Over the course of the summer, whether you are at the beach or in our parks, please remember that COVID-19 is still with us and we need to continue to do everything we can to protect each other.

Stay home when you are sick, practice physical distancing from those outside your household, practice hand hygiene, wear masks when you are in crowded places and do your part to protect our community."

- Mayor Marshall Chalmers
