Sturgeon County's Response to Coronavirus (Covid-19)

Sturgeon County recognizes that the safety and well-being of our residents is paramount. With this in mind, today I am sharing up-to-date coronavirus (COVID-19) information as well as what we at Sturgeon County are doing as the global situation continues to unfold.


I would like to emphasize that information we are conveying is not to incite fear but rather to ensure that our residents remain informed and understand the steps we are taking to protect our community.  


As of March 13, the Government of Alberta has confirmed 29 cases of COVID-19 in Alberta. It is important to note that our provincial health officials have stated that the risk level in Alberta is low and that the cases in our province to date have been travel-related.


Our Administration is closely monitoring the developments and is actively participating in twice-daily updates with the provincial health authority to ensure we have the most current information and health data.


We are listening to and working with health experts to determine the best course of action within our operations. Naturally, our efforts are focused on ensuring the continued provision of essential services to our community with minimal risk to our staff and the public.


Sturgeon County has an Emergency Preparedness Plan in place and Council is working closely with the provincial government to curb unnecessary risk as we navigate a pandemic landscape that is new to most.


The latest information we have suggests that a combination of proactive strategies can affect the speed and transmission of the virus and includes early detection, self-isolation and travel restrictions (social distancing, cancelling large events, working from home). By adopting these strategies Sturgeon County residents will do our part to reduce the anticipated pressure on services and improve health outcomes.


Recognizing the potential impact of this new respiratory virus in our community and beyond, I encourage residents to continue to exercise good judgement. Be it through voluntary, recommended or provincially mandated measures, we can all help minimize risk, improve our collective response, and facilitate recovery from this unprecedented and extraordinary situation.


I encourage everyone to be vigilant for symptoms, which may be similar to a cold or flu and include fever, cough, extreme tiredness and difficulty breathing. Please seek medical advice from your health care provider or reach out to Health Link on 811 if you or a family member feel unwell or are concerned you may have been exposed to the virus. Residents may also refer to the Government of Alberta website for up-to-date and accurate information.

Like many communities around the world, Sturgeon County is doing our utmost to manage this evolving situation to the best of our ability. For the latest information on any County-specific response and specific community developments, we have creative a dedicated webpage as well.
