The municipalities are following the lead of Alberta Health Services.   The situation with the virus is very fluid from day to day.  The public should refer to the Alberta Health Services website for the most up-to-date information about the virus.

Alberta Health Services is advising residents who feel they have the symptoms to phone Health Link 811 and to schedule an appointment for testing. COVID-19 symptoms are similar to influenza or other respiratory illnesses. Common symptoms include fever, cough, and extreme tiredness. Symptoms of serious illness include difficulty breathing and pneumonia.

Individuals who suspect they have the symptoms of the virus or have the virus should self-isolate themselves for 14 days.

All Albertans who are currently outside the country should self-isolate on their return for 14 days and monitor their health, independent of the country they were visiting. If individuals experience symptoms they should call Health Link 811 to book an appointment to be tested.

There is an increased risk of more severe outcomes for Canadians who are aged 65 and over, with compromised immune systems, and with underlying medical conditions.

The municipalities within the St. Paul region are continuing to monitor the situation and will advise the public if there are outbreaks in the region.
