Covid 19 Update
COVID 19 Update

No book has been written that could help guide us as we manage our lake operation during the global pandemic that continues to threaten our daily routines. In mid-May Alberta Health Services provided all private lake operators with a list of responsibilities and recommendations that would allow us to reopen. As a result, nearly all lake operators adopted similar policies and procedures and since opening the Park May 30th, our mandate has been to provide our membership firstly, the opportunity to have some sort of recreational outing or experience at the lake while observing those health measures enacted by both Alberta Health Services as well as the Chief Medical Officer for the Province of Alberta. Every lake has different operational concerns and circumstances so there will be differences in how they operate this season just as there are differences among us in how we all operate during a regular basis. This is an unprecedented time in our history and with park operating restrictions in place; this is not a normal operating season. Alberta Health Services support people getting outside for exercise and recreation however they also discourage the gathering of large groups or activities that could place people at risk.
Thank you to all members who have been so understanding and supportive of the measures we have in place in order to reduce the risk of exposure to COVID 19.
As stated above this is not a normal operating season and certain health measures and park restrictions will remain in effect until such time that Alberta Health Services declare the medical emergency over.
Some of our members however view our temporary rules and restrictions as overly oppressive. They would prefer that most of the restrictions we have had in place and currently have in place were gone, that the park should operate as if it were a normal season. We get that. Being able to come to this facility is a needed distraction away from the pressure of COVID 19 and everything about it that has impacted member's daily lives and routines since March.
However, as much as the rate of infection in the Province appears to be slowing, it still remains very real and the only way we will bring resolve to the pandemic problem is for people to continue to exercise due diligence and follow the health measures that are in place. If people choose to exercise poor judgement and engage in activities that will lead to the further spread of COVID 19, then this problem will be with us for a long time.
