Supports for residents and businesses

Testing

  • All Albertans exhibiting COVID-19 symptoms and/or who are close contacts of COVID-19 cases are eligible for free testing by appointment at Alberta Health Services assessment centre locations around the province. Book your test online by visiting ahs.ca/covid or phoning 811. 
     
  • The Province updated their isolation and quarantine requirements for Albertans who are partially and fully vaccinated.
     
  • The Strathcona County AHS testing site is located in trailers in the northwest corner of the Bethel Transit Terminal parking lot off of Broadview Road, not in the Bethel Transit Terminal.
     
  • Please do not ride transit to get to your appointment. If you require transportation, contact 811 and they will assist you. If you are going for testing at the Bethel site, please do not enter the transit terminal building.

Enforcement

  • Together with Alberta Health Services (AHS), Strathcona County RCMP and Peace Officers are supporting the province’s Public Health Order monitoring. The County will continue regularly patrolling higher use areas.
     
  • Public complaints about business health order violations must be directed to Alberta Health Services online or by phone at 1-833-415-9179. For other health order violations, please phone RCMP at 780-467-7741.
     
  • Public health order violations may carry a $2,400 fine and prosecuted for up to $100,000 for a first offence (effective May 19, 2021). Not following public health orders is against the law and puts our community at risk.
