Medicine Hat – During the COVID-19 pandemic, necessary City construction and infrastructure renewal and repair work still continues. Residents are reminded to allow crews space to work safely, and to adhere to physical distancing standards by staying at least two metres away from City workers. 

“We want to inform everyone in the community that City work will continue,” said Merrick Brown Director of Emergency Management. “You will see crews at work throughout the community.”

As an essential service provider, the City continues to operate wherever possible with strict adherence to all restrictions and guidelines put in place by the Province of Alberta. 

“It is critically important that we keep our City staff healthy so that we can continue to provide essential services to the community. We appreciate everyone’s cooperation in following public health recommendations,” added Brown. “Stay home wherever possible - especially if you’re unwell - wash your hands frequently, and please practice physical distancing.”
