On November 12 the Government of Alberta announced additional health measures in light of the continual rise of COVID-19 cases in the province:
'Starting Nov. 13, all restaurants, bars, lounges and pubs in regions under enhanced status must cease liquor sales by 10 p.m. and close by 11 p.m. The restriction will remain in place until Nov. 27.
There will also be a two-week ban on indoor group fitness classes, team sport activities and group performance activities in Edmonton and surrounding areas, Calgary and surrounding areas, Grande Prairie, Fort McMurray, Red Deer and Lethbridge.
Additional public health measures will also be implemented in all regions under an enhanced status. These measures will be in place until further notice:
Alberta Health, AHS and local municipalities will continue to closely monitor the spread across the province.
The Government of Alberta is asking all Albertans to do their part. If these measures are not successful, it will be necessary to implement more restrictive measures.'
As of November 12, 2020, the Town of Drumheller had 11 cases, and therefore falls under the Enhanced measures category.
Questions about these measures can be submitted to the government's Biz Connect team here.
