Yesterday, Big Lakes County was informed that one of our beloved community members had passed away from COVID-19. On behalf of Council and Staff I want to offer my condolences to Shawn Auger’s family and friends. This news has come as a shock to our community, but I know our County will continue to lead with compassion and kindness. It is times like these where we have to rely on each other the most. Big Lakes County asks that we all reach out to our neighbours and networks for the next while with compassion and support. We are all in this together.
In the meantime, The County continues to take COVID-19 very seriously, and we encourage everyone to continue following Alberta Heath Services recommendations. We would also like to thank the medical professionals, first responders, truck drivers, custodial staff, grocery store workers, farmers, and everyone else who is doing their part to help prevent the spread.
