Stettler County listed as having 11 active COVID-19 cases

Officials continue to urge residents to practice physical distancing to help limit the spread

According to the Province of Alberta, there are currently nine active cases of COVID-19 in Stettler County.

This was as of Tuesday afternoon.

That’s also out of a population of 12,449, according to the data.

Officials continue to urge residents to practice physical distancing to help limit the spread of COVID-19 and reduce the risk of getting sick.

“Physical distancing involves taking steps to limit the number of people you come into close contact with. This is not the same as isolation – you do not need to remain indoors,” noted the Province.

In the meantime, outbreak information will be updated on Tuesdays and Fridays each week on the provincial web site.

“Case numbers for outbreaks at specific sites are not provided online because they change rapidly and often.”
