Public health orders rescinded & State of Local Emergency lifted

On June 12, the Chestermere Emergency Management Agency (CHEMA) rescinded its current public health orders. The Mayor also  lifted the State of Local Emergency in Chestermere on June 15.

“Council and CHEMA agreed to end all public health orders and lift the local state of emergency as the COVID-19 infection rates in Chestermere have remained low for more than a month now,” says Mayor Chalmers. “We are also encouraged by the success of our first stage of the re-launch strategy, and the fact that the province also ended their State of Public Health Emergency.”

While local orders are expired, the provincial public health guidelines issued by Dr. Hinshaw must still be observed. This includes, physical distancing, regular hand washing, staying home and self-isolating for 14 days when sick, and wearing a mask when physical distancing is not possible.

“These common-sense guidelines will continue to be observed and will be part of the ‘new normal’ for all Chestermerians, Albertans and Canadians for many months to come,” adds Mayor Chalmers. “Our success so far is a result of your continued vigilance and dedication to protect each other and those of us that are most vulnerable and we must not become complacent while we begin to enjoy further relaxation of the rules.”

Suspicious vehicle stopped by Chestermere Peace Officers

On the morning of June 3, during routine foot patrols of John Peake Park, Chestermere Peace Officers observed suspicious behavior inside a parked vehicle.

As the suspicious vehicle was leaving the park, the Peace Officers initiated a traffic stop pursuant to the Alberta Traffic Safety Act after observing several traffic violations.

The Chestermere RCMP were requested to assist Chestermere Peace Officers, and it was during the subsequent search of the vehicle, officers located suspected methamphetamine, ammunition as well as break and enter tools.

Both occupants, who are not Chestermere residents, were subsequently arrested and charged for drug related offences, and breaching of their court-imposed conditions. They are set to appear in Strathmore Provincial court later this year.
