State of Local Emergency Rescinded – June 19, 2020

Effective today, the Stoney Nakoda Leadership and Command Team will rescind the State of Local Emergency (SOLE). This is due to the end of the need to enact immediate measures to help combat the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Ending the SOLE does not mean the pandemic is over. It recognizes that the initial efforts of Albertans and specifically the Stoney people have worked in keeping the numbers low. With the Province implementing Phase 2 of the relaunch, the Emergency Management team will continue to monitor the situation and report accordingly.

The Stoney Nation will still be under Alberta’s public health orders and the SOLE may be re-implemented if necessary. For your safety and the safety of others, please keep up the good work and follow all of the following recommended guidelines.
