Dear Stoney Community Members,
This notice is to advise community members that if you’ve attended any gatherings in the past 10 days you may have been exposed to the COVID-19 virus. Indigenous Services Canada, Alberta Region (ISC-AB) is working closely with Stoney Health Services to ensure contact tracing can continue and testing is available to all of those at risk.
If you are experiencing signs and symptoms of COVID-19 such as a fever, cough, shortness of breath, nasal symptoms, loss of smell or taste, or are feeling unwell or unusually tired, please visit the Stoney Car Wash between 11:00am and 3:30pm, Monday through to Friday, to get tested. For a complete list of COVID-19 symptoms please visit www.albertahealthservices.ca/covid-19 or call Health Link at 811. If you are experiencing any of the symptoms related to COVID-19 you MUST get tested and self-isolate for 10 days after the onset of symptoms, and until your symptoms are resolved (whichever is longer). Under no circumstances should you leave your property during self-isolation.
In order to limit the spread of COVID-19 we ask that all members please:
- 1. Cooperate with the health professionals conducting case management and contact tracing efforts to ensure timely and effective communicable disease control measures;
- 2. Immediately self-isolate and contact the health centre if you have any symptoms of COVID-19;
- 3. Wear a mask and practice good hand hygiene; and
- 4. Continue to avoid non-essential travel, limit contacts to your immediate household and do not attend any gatherings (indoor or outdoor).
We understand that this is a difficult time but continued adherence to all public health guidelines is important in limiting the spread of COVID-19. Full information on all current public health measures can be found on the Alberta Health website here: https://www.alberta.ca/enhancedpublic- health-measures.aspx.
The health and safety of Morley community members remains our top priority. We remain committed to working with leadership during this very difficult time.
Dr. Wadieh Yacoub, Senior Medical Officer of Health, ISC-AB
