Pincher Creek Regional Emergency Management Organization continues to coordinate a local response to the COVID-19 pandemic and provide regular updates.


All businesses must complete a plan to reduce the risk of transmission of COVID-19 among staff and customers. The completed template must be posted in your place of business or online within 7 days of the public being able to attend your business.

The template is available on www.alberta.ca/bizconnect or can be obtained from Pincher Creek & District Chamber of Commerce.  This template includes considerations to help business owners plan to open their business. This should be completed using Alberta Health’s Workplace Guidance for Business Owners, sector-specific guidelines, and any additional requirements your business or industry association provides.   For up to date information specific to businesses visit www.alberta.ca/bizconnect


Additional information on wearing masks in public is now available.  Masks, including homemade cloth masks or non-medical face masks, are another way to reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19 in areas where physical distancing (2 metres distance between individuals) may be challenging or not possible. Masks are another tool that complement – not replace other measures that have proven to be effective in slowing the spread of COVID-19 between people.

When to use a mask:
Areas where it may be difficult to maintain the 2 metre distance from other people not in your household (for prolonged period of times e.g. 15 minutes or longer).
For example:

  •  public transit

  •  grocery stores

  •  pharmacies

  •  hair salon and/or barbershop

  •  airplanes

  •  some retail stores


When a mask should not be worn:

  • When it is dirty, ripped/torn or damaged in any way

  •  For children under 2 years of age

  •  Anyone that has trouble breathing


Please continue to follow the practices and behaviors recommended by Alberta’s Chief Medical Officer of Health, Dr. Deena Hinshaw for the mutual benefit of the entire community.

The Town of Pincher Creek will not be issuing garage sale permits until further notice.
 
COVID-19 can be transmitted by touching objects or surfaces the virus has landed on then touching your eyes, nose or mouth. Activities that carry this risk are not recommended, even with physical distancing in place, including:

  • Communal meals: backyard barbecues, drinks with friends and neighbours, picnics and other gatherings
  • Activities that use shared equipment, such as horseshoes and bocce ball
 
Continue to limit outdoor activities to as small a group as possible, to a maximum of 15 people. Outdoor activities with people outside your household or cohort family can proceed as long as people are physically distanced, there is no contact with frequently touched objects or surfaces, and there are fewer than 15 people.
 
Some examples of activities could include:
  • going for walks or bike rides
  • flying kites
  • gardening in community settings
  • visiting parks (note: access to provincial and national parks is limited and not recommended at this time)

Entering into spring, many people plan a sale to move the stuff that has been piling up in their house, yard or garage. However, garage sales have many high touch items and enable an environment for mass gatherings, both of which could promote the spread of COVID-19. The current Provincial Public Health Ministerial Order prevents mass gatherings in an attempt to limit activates that could promote disease transmission.  As such, the Town of Pincher Creek will not be issuing garage sale permits, other municipal areas will be monitored.
