Commander’s Corner – Relaunching at a Safe Distance As Alberta Health Services sets out parameters to relaunch Albertans into a more familiar world, as it was before COVID-19, we encourage everyone to be mindful of the guidelines still in place. The success of the economic relaunch depends on each of us doing our part to avoid putting ourselves and others at risk.

Physical distancing requirements of two metres or six feet, will remain in place through all stages of relaunch. This is in effect in all environments outside of those you live with when visiting businesses, public trails, golf courses, backyard gatherings and campgrounds. As we are all following the same practices, we encourage everyone to be both co-operative and patient.

Those enforcing the guidelines are simply looking out for your safety and abiding by the measures that have been put in place for all of us. Devon RCMP Detachment Relaunch Strategy At the Devon RCMP Detachment, we have introduced new measures to ensure public safety as we join Alberta in the first stage of the relaunch.

Physical distancing will strongly influence how we can best serve you, as we all follow the guidelines set out by Alberta Health Services. Everyone is encouraged to call ahead before attending the detachment. This allows us to garner needed information before arranging an in-person meeting.

Our number is 780-987-3413. For information on Alberta’s relaunch strategy, please visit: www.alberta.ca/biz-connect.aspx. If you have any concerns about people not abiding by current public health guidelines, you can submit your complaint via Alberta Health at: ephisahs.microsoftcrmportals.com/create-case/.
