COVID-19 Update

32 active cases 

35 recovered 

2 death 

69 total


Pincher Creek Regional Emergency Management Organization (PCREMO) continues to actively monitor the COVID-19 pandemic and act as an information hub to keep the public informed of what is happening during this pandemic. 


Albertans have a responsibility to slow the virus's spread and make sure the health system can continue supporting patients with COVID-19, influenza and many other needs. 


There is a time lag between when people get infected and when new cases are identified. This means the cases we see today were infected up to 2 weeks ago. We must work together to protect each other. The greater the community spread, the more likely it will infect our loved ones most at-risk of severe outcomes, including death.


Albertans must continue following existing public health measures to keep everyone safe:

  • Wear a mask in all indoor work places, facilities and places of worship 

  • Practice good hygiene: wash your hands often and cover coughs and sneezes

  • Monitor your symptoms every day

  • If sick, stay home, get tested, and follow mandatory isolation requirements while waiting for results: 

    • if positive, isolate from others for 10 days or until symptoms are gone, whichever is longer

    • if negative, stay home until you're better

  • Avoid non-essential travel

  • Get the flu shot to keep influenza cases low so health workers can focus on the COVID-19 pandemic

  • Download and use the ABTraceTogether contact tracing app when out in public
