City of Edmonton responds to new provincial COVID-19 measures
The City of Edmonton appreciates the new measures announced by the province today. The situation we face with COVID-19 is serious. The virus is spreading faster in Edmonton and more widely than at any other point in the pandemic.
“I’ve long stressed that a regional approach is key to helping slow the spread of COVID-19 which is why I’m relieved to see the province announce these new measures today that I hope will help flatten the curve across our region,” said Mayor Don Iveson. “I empathize with Edmontonians who will, because of these additional restrictions, be required to make even more adjustments at a time when everyone’s lives have already been significantly disrupted. This will be difficult, but it is critical that we do our part to keep our families and communities safe. I thank Edmontonians in advance for adhering to these new public health measures — your efforts will make a significant difference in helping to stop the spread.”
The City is evaluating the Province’s new restrictions to determine exactly how they will affect our programs and services. The City will follow all of the Province’s new measures to ensure we do everything we can to protect Edmontonians from COVID-19.
Wash your hands, wear a face covering or mask, do not attend or hold gatherings and keep as physically distant as possible from those outside your household.
