Testing

All Albertans exhibiting COVID-19 symptoms are eligible for COVID-19 testing. Offered by appointment and free-of-charge at Alberta Health Services assessment centre locations around the province, testing is easily booked online by visiting ahs.ca/covid. If internet is not available, call 811, and staff will book a test appointment for you. 

Enforcement

Through close coordination with Alberta Health Services (AHS), Strathcona County RCMP and Peace Officers are supporting the province’s Public Health Order monitoring. Higher use areas will continue to be a part of the County’s regular patrol plan. The requirement of uniform adherence to AHS orders is immediate and critical. All public complaints regarding non-compliance of the province’s Public Health Order are to be directed to Alberta Health Services for tracking and actioning through to municipalities for investigation and action, as needed.

Violations of a public health order may be subject to a fine of $1,200. Additionally, one can be prosecuted for up to $100,000 for a first offence. Not following public health orders is against the law and puts our community at risk. If you have an enforcement related question, contact  RCMP and Enforcement Services  at 780-467-7741 to share your concern. RCMP and Enforcement Services are on-call if businesses, operators or proprietors face a conflict with the public in adhering to the health order in their place of business.
