Province Announces Re-Open Saskatchewan Plan
Re-Open Saskatchewan is a plan built on a methodical and phased approach to slowly lifting restrictions so that more businesses can open and more employees can go back to work.
Message from the Mayor
We are all very concerned about the COVID-19 Pandemic and the impact that it is having on our community. I would encourage everyone to do their part by practicing social distancing and following the advice of our Province’s Healthcare Officials. Following this advice will help slow the rate of COVID-19 infection and protect vulnerable populations, including seniors and people with compromised immune systems.
The Regular Council meetings will be held at the Elks Hall to enable members of Council and staff to maintain social distancing requirements. Council meetings are open to the public; however, non-essential delegations are asked to respect social distancing policies. If you have an issue you wish to present to the council, consider submitting by mail or e-mail; the council will discuss and respond. If it is urgent, you speak to the council, please call the office and arrangements to attend the meeting via conference call can be made.
A number of businesses and facilities have provided information on measures they have taken to protect the public. This information is listed on this page and is updated regularly. If we have missed your facility or business, or you require a change of information, please email email@example.com.
Town Council will continue to monitor the situation and provide information and updates as they become available on this page.
MUSEUM TO REMAIN CLOSED FOR 2020 SEASON
The Museum will remain closed for the 2020 season.
Currently, museums are able to open. Council has decided the museum will remain closed for the 2020 season.
Town Council very much appreciates your patience and understanding in these difficult times.
CRESCENT POINT POOL TO REMAIN CLOSED FOR THE 2020 SEASON
Aside from not knowing when Phase 4 (when swimming pools are permitted to reopen) will start, we realized that running swimming lessons and public swimming safely and effectively would not be possible. Lifeguards and swimmers are often put in a position where social distancing isn’t an option, and staff and swimmer safety is a priority at CPP.
On a personal note, it took me 5 days to make this post– every time I started typing I had to stop because I got too bummed out. The pool is easily my favourite part of my job, but this is the right call. Imagine lessons where all swimmers have to stay 2m away from the instructor and each other (rescue practice? Preschool classes in the deep end?), or driving to town and getting turned away at the gate because there were already 30 people on the premises, or having someone swim with their eyes shut and come up in front of you and do the spitty thing everyone does when they come up from the water right in your face. Definitely not ideal.
