The Town is pausing many of its regular activities. The #1 priority is to stop the spread of COVID-19. Emergency response and maintaining essential services are the focus. Town of High River staff work protocols are in place to reduce the risk to staff who provide these services.
The Town is working within a 6-week operational window for decision-making. The first window started on March 13 and ends on April 24. During this time we will continue to review our response and decisions and keep the community updated.
Some of the Town’s maintenance work may continue or be modified in the coming months. This includes regular park maintenance, maintenance of our facilities and infrastructure, customer service, and administrative work related to finances and planning.
“Our collective actions are to help reduce the spread of this virus. This will help our health care system to cope. It is not about what the health care system can do for us, but what we can do to help the health care system – which benefits everyone.”
-Peter Genereux, Manager of Emergency Management and Protective Services
