High River – On May 6, 2021, the Town of High River learned that an employee has been in close contact with a positive case of COVID-19. This staff member had no contact with the public through their work duties.
With the rise in active COVID-19 cases in the province, and to follow safe and transparent reporting practices, the Town is informing staff. In following Alberta Health Services protocol, the employee will follow isolation requirements and schedule a test for COVID-19 before returning to the workplace. We are also working to support Alberta Health Services & Occupational Health & Safety if there are additional measures that need to be taken.
Out of an abundance of caution, the affected facility is being cleaned and sanitized before other employees return to the workplace. As a result, Town office at 309B Macleod Trail SW, will be closed to the public on Friday, May 7, 2021.The Foothills County portion of the building will remain open to County residents.
