By Letter to the Editor on June 17, 2020.
I am writing to respond to the letter from Cathy Riley, of Bow Island, in the Thursday, June 4 paper.
You may think rural Alberta shouldn’t have to follow the COVID-19 rules because you don’t have any cases. All it takes is for a member of your community to go to a city (to shop, appointment, visit) and be exposed, to bring it back to your community.
No one is isolated anymore. For the safety of the vulnerable in your community, you need to consider keeping their risk low.
As an elderly senior, I am taking every precaution to stay safe, i.e. staying home, wearing masks when I do have to go out, hand washing. Please consider short-term rules for long-term safety.
