Residents are required to follow provincial guidelines regarding Covid-19. You are required to self isolate if you have returned from international travel or have been in close contact with someone infected with Covid-19. You are required to self isolate for 10 days if you show any symptoms. Gatherings are limited to a maximum of 15 people with everyone staying 2 metres apart. Social distancing of 2 metres apart is required by everyone at all times. Most importantly wash your hands frequently and avoid touching your face. More information on guidelines can be found at Alberta's provincial website. Council suggests that you follow Dr.Hinshaw's suggestion "This is not the time for people to go out to their summer cottages or seasonal villages to self isolate". She was emphasizing that supports and services in smaller communities are limited. They can also inadvertently pass on the virus to the local population which includes local towns. If you are going to your property then please do not treat your visit as though it was a normal weekend at the lake. Respect your neighbors by not getting closer to them then 6 feet, come to the lake fully stocked with all your groceries and staying away from the town of Athabasca. Now is not the time for visitors to be at your property. If we either choose to stay away or to practice social distancing and respecting our neighbours then we will get through this together Covid-19 free. If you choose to disregard this advice then the virus Covid-19 may spread into our community.
