Alberta Health Services has sent a weekend advisory for those in the southwest corner of Alberta regarding visiting hospitals in Cardston and Pincher Creek:

 

"We are limiting visitation at both the Cardston and Pincher Creek Health Centres in order to try and reduce the amount of smoke coming in the doors whenever they are opened.
Due to the Waterton fire, the air quality in these communities is suffering, and people with frail health and respiratory issues can be severely affected by the smoke.
Alberta Health Services is asking people to postpone visiting Cardston and Pincher Creek hospitals until further notice, to protect the health of patients and staff at these facilities.
"We thank everyone for their patience and understanding until conditions improve."
