Dear friends and neighbours,
It has been nearly six months since the COVID-19 pandemic arrived in Alberta. In that time, a lot has changed in our habits and daily lives. Thank you to everyone in our community for your continued hard work throughout this year to control the spread of COVID-19. Each of us has the tools to keep each other safe, and I encourage everyone to continue practicing physical distancing and good hand hygiene.
This month, students in our community will be returning to the classroom with enhanced safety measures for the health of students, teachers, and staff. A comprehensive plan was provided to school boards in July to ensure that there is enough time to put new health measures in place. While school may feel a little different at first, these measures will allow a safe, near-normal return to class. Each school will implement public health measures, including frequent cleaning of surfaces, introducing hand sanitizers to school and classroom entrances, grouping students in cohorts, and adjusting schedules to allow for greater physical distancing. To prepare for these changes, resources are available for parents at alberta.ca/returntoschool.
This year has presented some exceptional challenges to our community. As we work to re-open the economy, Alberta’s government is also looking to our long-term economic recovery. Alberta’s Recovery Plan is a bold series of policies that will support our economic future by introducing job-creating measures right away, building our critical infrastructure, and diversifying the economy. For more details on Alberta’s plan for the economy, please visit alberta.ca/recoveryplan.
Although we have a long road of recovery ahead, our community is incredibly resilient. Each day, I am honoured to serve as representative for Calgary-Elbow
