“As summer draws near, and vaccination rates climb, the Central Alberta regional Mayors and Reeves would like to thank citizens for their perseverance and cooperation throughout the pandemic.

COVID-19 in our communities and province affects us all, and although we are pandemic weary, we need to continue to be diligent in ensuring we limit the spread of the virus so we can have the summer that we need and are looking forward to.

We know many in our communities have been directly impacted by public health measures and restrictions. While vaccines offer long-term hope of resuming something closer to normal life in the days and months ahead, we still have responsibility in the short-term to minimize spread. The past 16 months have been challenging for everyone, but we will come through this if we continue to work together.

The Central Alberta region is like no other in Alberta. We are strong, we are determined, and we will continue to come together to support our citizens to reach the goal of stopping the spread and protecting our regional hospitals and health care centres. We have worked together throughout the pandemic, and we will continue to as we return to community life.

We encourage residents to continue to support our local businesses as much as you are able during this time. We have proven time and time again that we can come together as a region, and resiliently respond to challenges head-on.

It is imperative that we remain strong and continue to be kind to one another. We need a unified front and we need your continued support to ensure a strong finish to the marathon we have been through together. We are proud to serve you, and are committed to working with you to keep Central Alberta strong.
