Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses found mostly in animals. In humans, they can cause diseases ranging from the common cold to more severe diseases such as Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) and Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS). The disease caused by the new coronavirus has been named COVID-19.
COVID-19 was first identified in late 2019. It was declared a global pandemic by the World Health Organization in March 2020.
On July 1, Alberta entered Stage 3 of its Alberta's Open for Summer Plan as 70% of Albertans born in 2009 or earlier have received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine.
Effective July 1
Effective July 1, 2021, Devon will be following the lead of the province and face coverings will no longer be required in indoor public spaces in Devon.
As per the province, face coverings will still be required on public transit, taxis and ride sharing due to the closed environment of these spaces and to protect those who have not been able to fully vaccinate yet.
Please remember that this will be a transitional phase and many may still choose to wear a face covering in public to protect themselves and those around them. As we stated when the Bylaw was first introduced, first and foremost, continue to treat each other with respect when out in the community as you never know what situation another is in or who they are trying to protect.
COVID-19 vaccines are safe, effective and save lives. The vaccine helps prevent you from getting infected and protects you from getting severely sick if you do get it. Albertans are being vaccinated as fast as supply allows. This is happening in phases so people most at risk get it first. More groups will be eligible as we get more doses.
Until most Albertans are protected by the vaccine, we must continue following all public health guidelines: keep 2 metres apart, wash your hands, wear a mask in public, and stay home when sick.
There are a number of measures that can be taken to to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and protect yourself and others.
If you have symptoms or known exposure to COVID-19, please stay home and book a testing appointment online with the AHS assessment tool or call Health Link 811.
Additonal information on COVID-19 is available from both the provincial and federal governments.
