EDMONTON – March 19, 2020

We have been quiet lately because you need the time and space to digest all this information to make decisions. However, we have been in this with you from the start and will continue to be with you.

A State of Emergency has been declared in Alberta due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As part of the State of Emergency, ALL COMMUNITY LEAGUE FACILITIES MUST BE CLOSED.

This includes halls, rinks, playgrounds, sports courts/fields, and any other facility run by a Community League. The official wording for this measure can be found on the Government of Alberta COVID-19 website under “Mass gathering restrictions”

We all have a role to play in these unprecedented times and we need to understand that things are changing fast and so we need to rely only on official sources of information.  We need to resist sharing information that does not come from the authorities.

You can appreciate your Spruce Avenue Community League is not the right experts about your health. If you have concerns about your own health, please contact Health Link by calling 8-1-1.  However, our board is looking at all ways we can help our community to get through this. Our volunteers are looking at all options. Stay tuned for these efforts.

As the situation around COVID-19 evolves, we want to make sure we’re keeping you up to date on our planned activities. Please watch our Social Media for live updates on events and our efforts to come.

We want to thank you for being our neighbor and we appreciate your understanding that, as an important member of our community, we will navigate through this time together.

Please contact us should you have any questions or if you believe we can provide you with further assistance.

Spruce Avenue Community League Board
