Fort McKay returns to LEVEL 1

Alberta recently announced the lifting of public measures, and thanks to everyone’s help in slowing the spread of COVID-19 during the recent rise in cases in Fort McKay. Effective 7 pm, Friday (March 11th) we will return to LEVEL 1.

However, the masking requirement on buses and in our public buildings will remain in effect until April 1st, 2022. A second vaccine or booster is still your best protection against COVID-19. If you haven’t had a second dose or booster, please think about it. Call our Health Centre at 780.828.4229 to book a time.

Be patient. Be kind. Be safe.
