What's Happening in Tofield
OFFICAL RELEASE: February 4, 2021
- From the Office of the Mayor.
Town of Tofield
Friends, the Provincial Government has announced the loosening of restrictions starting Monday February 8th. The restrictions, and the four stages have been provided a metric they must achieve, as well as allowing a three-week window in between further measures either being enacted or removed. This has provided Alberta with a framework, and further light in what has at times provided great darkness. This, I hope will come as both good news and relief to our business owners in Tofield. However, there is a large, essential area that was not touched upon. This area is sports, fitness, and group activities from a physical and metal health perspective.
Recently, members of the Tofield Agricultural Society met with the Tofield Arena user groups. Sadly, and unfortunately the decision was made to remove the ice for the remainder of the 2021 season. This decision did not come easily and was prompted by the Provinces announcement. It is with great hope that there is an ability to return to some type of normal for the season in the fall, and for all these young people an ability to return to what they love and are so dearly missing. The impacts of lack of social interaction are becoming evident, and our most precious are suffering. There needs to be great credit provided to our dance teachers, karate teachers and fitness instructors who are forging through with creative ways to keep going. These teachers and children must also not be forgotten in our discussions and support.
The pressures and stresses of the pandemic have extended into 2021. Now is the time to provide support where we can for business, students, children, and the residents of our community. There is light ahead, and let’s collectively stay positive that we can move from one stage to the next. We have all proven to be resilient and must continue to do so.
Stay safe, stay well.
Due to COVID-19 Council Meetings will be held electronically.
