The Town of Sylvan Lake is asking would-be visitors to stay home for now – visit us later, in order to protect the health and safety of the community, and to prevent a local COVID-19 outbreak.
With the return of warmer temperatures, many Albertans may look to the community as an alternative to staying at home; however, non-essential travel is not yet recommended by Alberta Health.
We know people are eager to get out of their houses and enjoy the outdoors, unfortunately, if we all rush to common destinations like Sylvan Lake, it makes it more difficult to maintain social distancing and other public health orders.
We’ve introduced temporary and preventive measures to discourage crowds within the small waterfront area within our community.
These measures include the closure of all public washrooms, playgrounds and waterfront parking lots until the Government of Alberta moves to “stage 2” of its “Safely Staged Relaunch Plans” (TBA).
For those venturing out, a reminder: please do not neglect public health orders, and respect the space of others.
While we may not gather and celebrate together now, we invite you to “Love your bubble”…love local, support your own community, and stay safe.
Thank you for your support, and we’ll see you soon!
