COVID-19: City of Lethbridge provides update

April 29, 2020

Lethbridge Mayor Chris Spearman met with the media Wednesday and thanked the various organizations and local residents who have taken the time to volunteer during the coronavirus pandemic.

He says he knows how hard it can be to want to reopen businesses and break social distancing, but he is urging residents to trust the process.

"I've already had inquiries in my office from some who want to open their businesses. We don't have the authority to go ahead and it would be irresponsible for me to do that. People are stir-crazy. People want their businesses open. I understand that frustration." 

Lethbridge has been in a local State of Emergency since March 20th. It was extended until the end of June.
