Although Alberta Health Services has not prohibited block parties, the Town is strongly discouraging them at this time. This is based on Dr Hinshaw’s caution that the nature of family events / gatherings remains high risk, which is partly due to sharing of common objects (food, beverages) and touching common surfaces.
