As you know, COVID-19 is spreading rapidly in Alberta. In the Edmonton Health Zone, we have reached the tipping point - where the rate of spread of the virus could grow exponentially and cause devastating harm to the health and safety of residents and our economy. Last week the Government of Alberta introduced new restrictions intended to slow the spread of the virus and, on Friday, the City of Edmonton announced our plans to enforce and support these restrictions.
Please view the image below or open the "Edmonton Covid Restrictions.pdf" underneath for more information.
Please stay safe.
As hospitals resume procedures that were put on hold for COVID-19, we are adding more blood donation appointments to meet patient needs and we need to fill every available appointment."

Kids On Track is a Christian non-profit located in West Edmonton. We are a community building organization that provides hope, direction, and ongoing support for children, youth, and their parents. Educational, social, and recreational elements are combined to deliver well-rounded programs. We cultivate relationships with participants encouraging character and leadership development, social skills, and a healthy lifestyle. We strive to support families that have limited opportunities due to various challenges.
Traditionally, Kids On Track has been able to offer day-camps for children all summer long. This summer we have sadly had to suspend the day camp program but we began looking at what we CAN do. So, our Active Families program is EXPANDING! This is a chance for parents to get active and get creative WITH their children, fostering a stronger family relationship through shared experiences. We will be offering four activity slots per week M-Th as well as two Saturdays a month. There's something for everyone!
Activities like container gardening, nature games, bike days, craft days, and creative outside games will all be a part of the summer. We will provide all equipment and supplies. We will align with all the guidelines provided from the province of Alberta including social distancing.
We know that these last few months have been rough on teenagers. Their mental health has taken a hit as well as their activity levels. We are excited to announce that the Shift Youth program will be offering outdoor recreation activities four days a week M-Th, with a morning time slot and an afternoon time slot.
Activities like bubble soccer, giant games, and high ropes are just a couple of the amazing activities our team has planned. The team is working hard to ensure that all activities will align with the guidelines provided from the province of Alberta including social distancing.
AHS Emergency Medical Services has provided the following information on heat related illnesses and backyard play safety.

Stormwater Facilities have become popular recreation hotspots in Edmonton and this is not good practice. These facilities have a job to do; they are an important part of the stormwater drainage infrastructure in the city and help prevent flooding during severe weather events and by collecting run off from city streets. Water moves through these facilities throughout the year creating instability and when combined with the substances that are washed into the facility from the streets they become dangerous. Recreation on these facilities is prohibited, although it is not widely recognized. Families should find safe winter recreation alternatives. EPCOR has compiled a list of safe skating sites in Edmonton, which can be searched on our website at epcor.com/safe-rinks.
