FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

First Confirmed COVID-19 Case

During today’s Chief Medical Officer of Health (CMOH) daily website update we received news that Drumheller has two confirmed cases of COVID-19.

Mayor Colberg explains “while it’s scary to hear this news, it was likely inevitable.  I don’t know the details about the individuals, but I hope they are able to fight this virus and recover. Now more than ever, I want to stress the importance of social distancing, washing hands and clean, clean, clean. Together we are at war with this virus and can fight this, but we need to stay committed in our efforts.  STAY HOME.  Practice social distancing. Help your neighbour. If they need assistance with groceries or their prescription, pick it up for them. We are responding to this virus by being careful, compassionate and caring.”

Remember to always:

  • Cover your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze
  • Lather your hands for at least 20 seconds using soap and water
  • Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available
  • Avoid touching your face

Drumheller continues to operate under a State of Emergency. For more information check for updates at www.drumheller.ca
