COVID-19 Info:

Updated: 29 April 2020

TRICO Centre, Lake Bonavista and Willow Ridge community facilities have been ordered closed.

The Province and City have extended pandemic restrictions to August 31. FLC Seniors Club Activities will not resume until restrictions are lifted even though Alberta Health has set guidelines for groups of 15 or less. Below is an excerpt from Alberta Health Restrictions on Gathering (see https://www.alberta.ca/restrictions-for-mass-gatherings.aspx): 

"Recommendations for mitigating risk in indoor and outdoor gatherings:
 
Cancel, postpone, reschedule or explore virtual attendance options for attendees from demographic groups at greater risk of severe disease, such as people 60 years of age or older and individuals with chronic medical conditions

Check the government / community websites for the latest information and advice:

Please exercise care when reading any claims about COVID-19.  There are many misleading and outright false claims being made, so some skepticism is warranted. It is probably better to NOT forward / retweet / repost anything you receive from others, since it may be contributing to the spread of misinformation.  For example there is information supposedly from Stanford that is false.  It looks good and is almost plausible, but a quick search shows it to be a fraud (not from Stanford and misleading at best).  Instead direct your family and friends to the websites above or other reputable health sites (e.g. Johns Hopkins or CDC).

Stay safe.
