The City of Medicine Hat (CMH) has plans in place for events like these to ensure appropriate response, and has enacted the Municipal Emergency Management Plan to ensure methodical, coordinated and responsible decision making and action.

CMH reminds residents to be kind and take care of one another.

  • If you are in self-isolation, please follow the guidelines to help prevent the spread. Do not attend City facilities or other community locations to run errands, pay bills, etc. The City has also announced a temporary exemption allowing RV usage for self-isolation.

  • In accordance with AHS recommendations, it is not necessary to stockpile goods at this time.
  • Residents are reminded to NOT FLUSH PAPER TOWELS OR WIPES (in lieu of toilet paper) as this will cause sewer clogs and backups. Even wipes that claim to be 'flushable' are not safe for flushing and can cause sewer system issues.

During a public health event, Alberta Health Services is the authority, and general community impact of the virus on residents is within their purview. The City of Medicine Hat’s role is to keep staff healthy and to ensure essential services operate smoothly.

CMH continues to work with AHS to monitor the situation and implement responsible decisions. All residents are encouraged to follow the advice of Alberta Health in helping reduce the spread of the virus.
