New measures to curb the rapid growth of COVID-19

On November 12 the Government of Alberta announced additional health measures in light of the continual rise of COVID-19 cases in the province:

'Starting Nov. 13, all restaurants, bars, lounges and pubs in regions under enhanced status must cease liquor sales by 10 p.m. and close by 11 p.m. The restriction will remain in place until Nov. 27.

There will also be a two-week ban on indoor group fitness classes, team sport activities and group performance activities in Edmonton and surrounding areas, Calgary and surrounding areas, Grande Prairie, Fort McMurray, Red Deer and Lethbridge.

Additional public health measures will also be implemented in all regions under an enhanced status. These measures will be in place until further notice:

  • Maximum attendance of 50 at wedding or funeral ceremonies.
  • It is recommended all faith-based activities limit attendance to one-third capacity per service.
  • Residents should not hold social gatherings within their homes and should not plan social gatherings outside their community.
  • It is recommended employers in office settings implement measures to reduce the number of employees in the workplace at one time.
  • All existing guidance and legal orders remain in place in all areas.

Alberta Health, AHS and local municipalities will continue to closely monitor the spread across the province.

The Government of Alberta is asking all Albertans to do their part. If these measures are not successful, it will be necessary to implement more restrictive measures.'

As of November 12, 2020, the Town of Drumheller had 11 cases, and therefore falls under the Enhanced measures category.
