COVID's not going away without a fight. So let's fight it together.

The stakes are getting higher, but if we each do our part, we have the power to bend the curve downward and help defeat COVID-19 once and for all.

There are

12

active COVID-19 cases in the Lac Ste. Anne zone as of June 26. The numbers don't lie: thanks to our collective efforts we're not just bending the curve; we're crushing it!

A message to the citizens of Lac Ste. Anne: the power to change the game is in our hands.

Now more than ever, we must stand together to protect ourselves and our loved ones against this relentless enemy.
Wear a Mask
Wear a Mask
Wearing a mask wherever you go in public is one of the tools we can use to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.

To bend the curve, we need to stay apart from others. About the length of a hockey stick will do.

What do we seek to accomplish?

In plain language: we want folks in the Lac Ste. Anne region to follow the provincial COVID-19 health restrictions.

By following the rules to the letter, we can bend the COVID-19 curve and get back to life as we knew it. We can hug and kiss our grandkids as they arrive for the holidays. We can shake the hands of our colleagues and customers. We can resume our daily lives and livelihoods without restraint.

To break it down even further, we want you to:

  • Wear a face covering
  • Stay home if possible
  • Wash your hands
  • Avoid all gatherings
  • Isolate if you get sick
  • Get the flu shot

Our mission is simple.

Like the name of this website suggests, we want to bend the COVID-19 curve in the Lac Ste. Anne region.

What does 'bend the curve' mean?

When people use terms like 'bending the curve' or 'flattening the curve,' they're not talking about finding a cure for COVID-19. They're talking about keeping cases as low as possible so our healthcare system can do its thing.

By keeping the numbers down - or bending the curve downward, we can prevent an overload of our healthcare system and avoid some pretty grim consequences.

What if we don't bend the curve?

If we let our guard down, COVID-19 cases will without a doubt continue to climb. This increase will put additional pressure on Alberta's healthcare system.

Despite the pandemic, heart attacks and highway rollovers stilll happen. Life-saving surgeries are still scheduled. Kids still break their arms. When the hospital beds are full of patients dealing with COVID-19, where do these Albertans go?

What happens if we don't flatten the curve? More people will get sick; our healthcare system will be overwhelmed; and sweeping provincial restrictions will turn the screws even tighter on our lives and livelihoods.

We can't let that happen.

Who's doing it right?

A shout-out to the local businesses and community members doing their utmost to keep communities safe during COVID-19. Who Else is doing it right?

How's the curve looking in the Lac Ste. Anne region?

We're cautiously optimistic as we look ahead at the third reopening — and hopefully the last.

Due to Alberta’s plummeting case numbers, we should be proud of our collective efforts to bend the curve on COVID-19.

At long last, the situation is hopeful. The Province is in Stage 2 of a three-stage plan for reopening the province by the summertime, which includes lifting nearly all public health measures by mid-July.

 

The reopening will move in stages, the first two dependent on vaccinations and hospital numbers, with the third being contingent only on the number of people who have gotten their shot.

In the Lac Ste. Anne region, we have risen to the challenge of bending the curve downward and making sure the health system is equipped to support patients with COVID-19, influenza and many other needs. Well done everyone.

United we stand.

The municipal leaders of Lac Ste. Anne call upon the community at large to work together, heed the rules, and help bend the curve.
