The Alberta government has enacted more strict guidelines to help Stop the Spread of COVID-19.

- If you have returned from travel outside of Canada or have been in close contact with a known case you MUST self-isolate for 14 days following your return/exposure and monitor yourself for symptoms.
- If you have symptoms including fever, cough, shortness of breath, difficulty breathing, sore throat or runny nose, you MUST self-isolate for 10 days after the onset of symptoms and until your symptoms have resolved (whichever is longer).
- If you are quarantined because you recently came back from outside the country, or you are a close contact of a confirmed case of COVID, you must remain on your own property. Under no circumstance should you leave your property during the 14 days of self-isolation.

Social distancing works. Please do your part.
