Town Reviews New Public Health Measures for COVID-19
Working together to care for our community
HIGH RIVER, AB: The Town of High River is reviewing the new public health measures that came into effect for Alberta today. We will continue to monitor the Province’s measures and advise the public if any changes will affect municipal operations.
Currently, High River is fortunate to have a relatively low number of positive COVID-19 cases. This means the town does not fall into the enhanced measures category at this time and facilities will remain operating in their current state.
On the Alberta Regional Classification Map (pictured) High River is a small island of yellow surrounded by a large area of purple. The purple highlights those communities that are under an “enhanced” COVID status requiring additional measures as ordered by the province. The Town is continuing to closely monitor the number of active COVID-19 cases and is prepared to meet the Provincial requirements if the community is moved to an enhanced status. This move will occur with minimal notice and we apologize in advance for any inconvenience.
It remains important that together, we do all we can to keep the number of positive COVID-19 cases low in our community.
We ask all residents and businesses to continue following AHS health protocols. The new measures are in place to help flatten the curve, prevent the spread of COVID-19 and ease the growing burden on the health care system as numbers rise with the cold weather.
2020 has been a challenging year as we learn to work and live during a Global Pandemic. Thank you to everyone for your perseverance. We are in this together.
