The City’s response to COVID-19
EMA activated in response to provincial state of public health emergency
The City’s Emergency Management Agency (EMA) has been activated in response to the state of public health emergency declared by the Government of Alberta on Sept. 15. New province-wide public health actions are coming into effect, with some starting on Sept. 16 and the remaining on Sept. 20.
These public health actions are targeting the Province’s top three priorities: maximizing healthcare capacity, getting as many Albertans vaccinated as possible, and reducing transmission through contact.
The City’s EMA is reviewing the new actions and will share the impacts on our services and facilities in the coming days. As always, the health and safety of our residents, staff and visitors is our top priority. We are committed to community safety and well-being.
Please visit the Government of Alberta’s website for more information on the Provincial public health actions.

The framework includes three key themes that will be critical to address throughout the recovery: governance, the economy and the community.
