The Town is reviewing the list of health-related closures and restrictions in light of the province’s new Relaunch Strategy. For now, Town facilities remain closed to the public until further notice. Please stay the course and continue to follow all health and safety measures, remain home and practice social distancing. We will keep the community updated about changes during the Town’s current operational window, which ends on June 30.
Long Weekend Reminders:
Practice Social Distancing – Enjoy Trails Safely!
Maintaining social distancing isn’t always a walk in the park! With warmer weather, Happy Trails use has increased significantly. Sometimes it’s difficult to stay 2-metres (or 6 feet) from others using the walking paths. Step off the path if another person is coming towards you to keep a 2-metre buffer. Cyclists should ring a warning bell to let walkers know they’re approaching from behind. Wave and say hi to other folks enjoying the Happy Trails, and please keep a healthy physical distance from those who are not immediate members of your home.
Yard and Garage Sales Not Permitted
It is important to continue following provincial guidelines for social distancing and gatherings. Driveway, garage or in-home sales create unsafe environments that encourage groups of people who touch items on display. Residents are encouraged to hold online sales with curbside pick up to prevent the spread of the virus.
Join the Town in celebrating National Public Works Week May 17 – 23.
Public works professionals include those who manage water, sewer, public transportation and refuse removal systems, as well as those responsible for maintaining public buildings and grounds. Join us in recognizing and thanking the public works professionals at work in High River every day – 365 days of the year! Remember to give them a thumbs up or wave when you drive by
