Transcript: 

MAYOR CHALMERS: Hello Chestermere, 

The warmer weather is finally here.  Sadly, COVID is still here as well, and in unprecedented numbers. 

On May 12, we had 203 active cases of COVID-19, the most we’ve ever had. And while our numbers rise and dip from day to day, we’ve consistently had over 100 active cases since the beginning of April. 

Chestermere has been highlighted publicly in recent days by the Premier and the Minister of Health, as a community where COVID is alarmingly spreading. This is not good news.

Our situation is very serious. This third wave is the worst our community has seen. 

And it is up to all of us to change it.  We need your help.

DEPUTY MAYOR YOUNG:                                                                                  

We have all had to do our part to protect every member of our community. In Chestermere, some cases have been mild, some have been serious, and some have been very serious.

Think of the cashier who helps you with your groceries, think of the couple and their young kids with health concerns across the street, think of the single parents who can’t work from home.

We must have compassion and understanding for those around us and remember that ultimately, our efforts will protect each other. For just a little longer.   

And as we all work together to stop the spread, we also encourage all residents who are eligible to sign up to be vaccinated. AHS indicates that over 40% of our community has received the vaccine – and we thank you for doing your part to protect yourselves and your loved ones. And if you have not yet been vaccinated, we encourage you to sign up as soon as possible. 

MAYOR CHALMERS: 

Together, we can keep each other safe, we can stop the spread, we can all commit to getting vaccinated, we can bring an end to this pandemic, and get back to regular life.  But it is up to you.  

Go outside and enjoy the fresh air, but continue to be vigilant.   Follow all of the public health rules. That means, for the time being, staying distanced from those you do not live with and stop social gathering. Stay home when sick. Get tested and get vaccinated.  For those who are not following the law, our officers have a duty to enforce provincial rules and they will do so to keep our community safe. 

Please, join us for this one last push to the finish. Do your part; we are so close. And we can do this, but we must do it together. 

Thank you.
