On July 30, 2020 it was announced that there was one case of Covid 19 in the MD of Provost. For anyone who cares that could also include the Town of Provost, but regardless as of the date of this message (August 10, 2020) we still have only one (1) case reported in the MD of Provost. I believe that this is thanks to the people who are practicing social distancing (6 ft apart) and as well those who are wearing masks where social distancing is not capable. The city of Edmonton has developed a bylaw and everyone is required to wear masks in public places. Just last week Dr. Erasmus reported there being a number of Covid cases at the Provost Health Care Centre and because they are not from the MD of Provost they are not reported here. So keep this in mind. There were some cases reported at a nearby Hutterite Colony and again because it was not in the MD of Provost they were not reported.
We have to be thankful that we are where we are today and hopefully we will continue as long as we practice safe distancing. Lets not forget that our community has lots to offer and unless you HAVE to go outside to shop don’t and that way we will continue to be where we are today.
