The Chestermere Emergency Management Agency (CHEMA) has been busy compiling some community-specific data and trends from the reported COVID-19 cases in Chestermere.
“We are confident that this data will illustrate that your collaboration and our measures have been instrumental in keeping the infection rate in Chestermere low,” says Mayor Marshall Chalmers. “Our efforts are working. Our community is taking this health crisis seriously. Let’s keep it up, and keep our local curve flat.”
A full report has been made available on the City’s website that includes projections that will provide a general forecast of what could be the scenario for the community in the coming weeks and months. Please note that these are subject to change.
“The main point that we would like to illustrate is that Chestermere’s response to COVID-19 is working,” adds Bernie Morton, Director of Emergency Management. “Your actions, are working, and as hard as this has been, we are flattening the curve in our community.”
The data, presented in a series of graphs, also shows that compared to some surrounding municipalities, Chestermere is keeping infection rates low, and well below the provincial projections.
“We are seeing some of the lower infection rates in Chestermere and this really serves to illustrate the extreme importance, and the value of continuing to practice physical distancing, staying home, only going out for necessities and increasing hygiene practices,” adds Morton.
