A Message from our Mayor-COVID-19
As you are no doubt aware, we are currently in the midst of an unprecedented health emergency which is impacting our community and those across the Province.
I am keenly aware that the COVID-19 virus has and will continue to impact many people over the coming days, weeks, and possibly months. It is obvious we are in uncharted waters when it comes to this major health issue, and as such, it is difficult to know how the situation will unfold.
Please know that the Village of Alix Council and the Administrative team is monitoring the situation closely and is prepared to take the required actions necessary to ensure we are as safe as possible now and into the foreseeable future. We are receiving regular updates from Alberta Health Services and Health Canada, and enacting protocols and procedures as per their requests.
But we can’t do this alone.
It is very important we all do our part to help slow the spread of this virus, which I know we can all do if we work together. While there is no need to panic, we do need to act with caution and ensure we follow the information posted on the Village of Alix website. If you are unable to access the website, please contact the Village Office at 403-747-2495. You can also access accurate and timely information from both the Government of Alberta, and the Alberta Health Services websites.
While I can appreciate there will be trying times for all of us, the safety of everybody in our Village is absolutely critical, particularly for young children, seniors, and those with respiratory issues.
I’m very confident we will all do our part to help our friends, families and the community as a whole, and overcome this pandemic in the coming days.
On behalf of your Village Council, Administration, and many volunteers, please stay safe and look out for each other!!!!
