The Town of Edson understands the financial pressures and frustrations being felt by many sectors of the community right now. However, we are encouraging everyone to abide by the Provincial Health Orders in place.
The Town realizes that not everyone agrees with the restrictions. But whether we agree or not, the restrictions have been enacted as a measure to help get us over the finish line with COVID-19 and keep our healthcare system from being overwhelmed before vaccines are fully rolled out. With the variant cases taking hold in the province, it is important that we remain vigilant. The variant cases have been shown to be much more transmissible and are impacting people of all age groups.
As these are provincial orders and restrictions, decisions around enforcement fall under Alberta Health Services jurisdiction.
Our Town Council remains committed to advocating for a more regional approach to restrictions, as well as more local data being shared with Albertans to help understand the measures being taken.
