The County is dealing with the issue in the following manner:

Administration office and Public Works Shops are CLOSED to visitors.
- If any transactions (bill or tax payments, permit inquiries, etc) can be done online, please do so.

- We will be processing all payments (electronic/cheques) made during this time. If you are submitting a payment in our dropbox (located to the left of the front doors), we ask that you use cheques ONLY. Reciepts will be mailed once payments have been processed.
Our first responders are ready should any emergencies in the County arise.

Statement from Shane Schreiber, Managing Director/Assistant Deputy Minister of Alberta Emergency Management Agency:
As you may be aware, the Alberta Essential Services List has been published on the Government of Alberta’s website https://www.alberta.ca/essential-services.aspx
The intent of this extensive list is to be generic and permissive – in other words, if a Public Health Order or local authority directive has not specifically listed a business or activity to close or stop, and the business or activity is listed under the Essential Services List, then it could and should continue for the good of the economy and society in general.
