Please be aware @ahs_media has described personal or non-medical masks as a measure to protect others from you, not necessarily as reliable protection for you. You can wear a cloth face covering in public settings where physical distancing is difficult.

Help us keep Calgary healthy and clean - please do not litter.

We have received complaints of masks and gloves found in parking lots and on pathways; when you are done with these items, put them in your black bin or a public garbage can.

Only buy what you need for a week. Stockpiling creates additional unnecessary pressure on the food supply chain. We are working with industry to ensure our food supply system remains strong: https://www.alberta.ca/release.cfm?xID=69926EE5B4903-A9C3-5379-F0632EA42528DDAB … #COVID19AB

Please remember that there is no need to buy goods in excessive quantities.

Facing the wall in an elevator might feel rude, but it’s the right thing to do to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. 

Also remember to limit the number of people to 3, avoid touching your face after touching the buttons & wash or sanitize your hands after leaving the elevator.

As always, discretion for issuing these tickets will be used. The fine for contravening the Public Health Order is $1,200. Public safety is of the utmost importance and we need to use every tool in our toolbox to flatten the curve. (3/7)
