An outbreak of cases has been identified from a gathering in Coaldale, leading to several new cases recently. There have been outbreaks in neighboring communities, including Lethbridge and Lethbridge County, serving as a reminder that COVID-19 still presents a risk in our community. 

Citizens are reminded to continue to follow these steps to slow the spread: 

•    Practice physical distancing of at least 2 metres

•    Wear a mask when physical distancing isn't possible

•    Practice good hand hygiene

•    Cover coughs and sneezes, and avoid touching your face

•    Monitor for symptoms and self-isolate for 10 days if symptoms appear

•    If you are a close contact of someone with COVID-19 you must isolate for 14 days

If you are concerned about someone not following the public health orders, a complaint can be submitted online. https://ephisahs.microsoftcrmportals.com/create-case/

The Town of Coaldale would also like to remind everyone that individuals with COVID and individuals linked to outbreaks deserve the community's support and understanding. COVID-19 is a reality for all of us, and we must support each other through this pandemic.
