With the starting of extracurricular activities, PCREMO is reminding you of AHS recommendations involving singing/vocal performances during the COVID-19 pandemic. Please continue to do your part to ensure the safety of our community members of all ages against the spread of COVID-19. 
Informal group singing by the general public should not occur at this time, including:

  • Karaoke singing;
  • Audience singing; and
  • Singing in other informal contexts where there is not a recognized leader, such as a conductor or teacher.

Audience Guidance:
  • Gathering restrictions apply and should be observed at all times for audiences/spectators.
  • Seating should face the same direction and leave at least 2 metres between each person or household/cohort.
  • Audience members should remain seated in seats in outdoor and indoor events, except to access washroom or food/beverage services.
  • Open area standing or dancing areas like mosh pits or dance floors are not permitted for audiences. Fixtures where attendees are not seated (e.g., high tables, ledges) are not recommended.   
Individuals at high risk of severe outcomes from COVID-19 should carefully weigh the risks and benefits of participating in singing activities or attending singing performances and, if participating, should be particularly attentive to preventive measures.

For complete documentation on Alberta Health’s recommendations on all singing/vocal performances, please visit https://open.alberta.ca/dataset/a5aa8239-4eef-4dd2-a8e0-c81912d8b6e0/resource/85638d70-d5a5-419d-ae61-579089f8b82e/download/covid-19-relaunch-guidance-for-singing-and-vocal-performance.pdf

Dr. Hinshaw in her live video update today shared "I have no plans to suggest that Alberta cancel halloween this year....in many ways Halloween is actually safer to celebrate than other holidays. Unlike Thanksgiving for example where families traditionally gather inside to enjoy dinner together, most Halloween activities take place outdoors and largely within one family. However we do need to make it as safe as possible to celebrate this year."

Halloween guidance is available online at www.Alberta.ca/halloween  The website includes guidance on trick or treating, handing out candy and Halloween parties.  A printable poster is available to place in windows to show if you are handing out candy or not this year.  A one page printable summary of the guidance is available here: https://www.alberta.ca/assets/documents/covid19-halloween-tip-sheet.pdf

Please continue to do your part to ensure the safety of our community members of all ages against the spread of COVID-19.

  • Musicians should wear masks when not playing wind instruments
  • Musicians should use hand sanitizer containing at least 60% alcohol content before and after playing
  • Individuals at high risk of severe outcomes from COVID-19 should not play wind instruments, and should not be near those playing wind instruments
  • Sharing of instruments, equipment, and other items should be avoided
    • If certain items must be shared, clean and disinfect them between use by different individuals
  • While performing in public places, performers are encouraged to observe frequent hand hygiene and proper respiratory etiquette

To protect ourselves, our loved ones and our communities, we must be mindful of the role we all play in helping to reduce the spread of COVID-19 during holidays such as thanksgiving.  COVID-19 is highly transmissible in social settings. One infected person could cause many people attending the same gathering to become ill. A guidance document on safe holiday entertaining has been created to help reduce the spread of COVID-19, find out more here: https://www.alberta.ca/assets/documents/covid-19-relaunch-guidance-safe-holiday-entertaining.pdf  We urge you to be diligent, follow public health guidance, and have safe and happy holidays.

The Pincher Creek region, which includes the MD of Pincher Creek and the hamlets within their boundaries, the Town of Pincher Creek, Village of Cowley and Piikani Nation, currently have 1  confirmed active case of COVID-19.

Any COVID positive case is followed up urgently by AHS.  These clients will be contacted directly by the Communicable Disease Control (CDC) team and information regarding those client’s close contacts will be gathered and followed up confidentially by the team.  CDC follows stringent guidelines to determine who is an identified close contact.  Clients who have a positive test are not expected to do their own contact tracing and are discouraged from doing this as many factors influence who, in fact, is considered to be a close contact. If you have not been contacted by AHS you are not considered to be a close contact of a positive COVID case.
 
It is the responsibility of all residents to do your part to help prevent the spread of COVID-19
and take steps to protect themselves and others:
 

  • If you are feeling ill, stay at home
  • Practice physical distancing (a hockey stick apart)
  • Wear a mask when physical distancing is not possible
  • Practice good hygiene: wash hands often for at least 20 seconds, cover coughs and sneezes, and avoid touching face
  • Monitor for symptoms: cough, fever, shortness of breath, runny nose or sore throat
  • Self-isolate for the legally-required 10 days if you have any symptoms that are not related to a pre-existing illness or medical condition
  • Take the COVID-19 self-assessment to access testing

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. 

At this time AHS is not making masks mandatory to enter business, some businesses may choose to make masks mandatory to enter their business, be respectful, and be kind. If you are unsure if a mask is required please contact the business directly.
