Beaver County COVID-19 Update

Beaver County COVID-19 Update

BESC is aware of the recent spike in cases of Covid in the Beaver County region. We strongly recommend calm in riding out this elevation of the numbers, as the Province of Alberta is also experiencing a similar situation.

We are monitoring the situation closely and listening to our partner municipalities and Directors of Emergency Management in the region. The overwhelming message is to follow current Alberta Health Services guidelines, practice physical distancing and when appropriate wear a mask. Masks are available at Tim Hortons, A&W, McDonalds and other AHS designated locations including retail outlets. It would be helpful to call first and reserve your order.

Alberta Health Services has assured us that all the cases, both the ones in the past, and now the most recent ones, are from known sources, and everyone involved is cooperating with Alberta Health Services to prevent further spread.  The general population in the Beaver County Region is at low risk.

This increase was anticipated and shows the conditions that existed up to about a week ago, although heading into the upcoming long weekend it is important that we stay vigilant to reduce the cases and protect the vulnerable. Together we can mitigate this temporary outbreak. Please follow the Covid Links on our website at  www.besc.ca or for further information call our office 780-336-3041
