Medicine Hat – The City of Medicine Hat will continue to share information on City-related impacts of COVID-19. Please be advised of the following.

Public Health Resources

City Information
The City is responsible for City facilities, keeping City staff healthy and safe, helping prevent the spread of the virus in the community (shutting down rec facilities etc.) and most importantly, ensuring essential services (fire services, police services, water treatment, power plant and utility distribution) continue to operate smoothly through business continuity planning.

The City will continue to post about City-related impacts. This will include:

  • Cancellations and closures of City facilities
  • Impacts on City-related services
  • Information on changes to City-related fees (FLC, utilities, taxes, etc.)

Community Resources Page on City Website
A community resources webpage is under development that will provide community members a collection of local agencies and groups offering support services in Medicine Hat. This resource is expected to be live later this week. 

The City is very aware of the impact on the community and will work with residents, businesses, and other levels of government to help the community recover from this unprecedented event. These actions will take time.

For now, the City encourages everyone to remember the four Cs:

  • Calm
  • Cautious
  • Courteous
  • Compassionate

You can find information on City-related impacts at our COVID-19 page.
