Some Medicine Hat residents suggest the City should restrict travel to and from Brooks.

Numbers of COVID-19 cases in Brooks have been spiking over the last week, making some here nervous.

Medicine Hat Mayor Ted Clugston says restricting travel orders would have to come from the province.

Clugston says, “If Alberta Health deems that there is a risk to the City of Medicine hat, or other hot zones where there could be an outbreak and they decide to restrict travel, it is up to Alberta Health, but the municipality will not be restricting travel.”

Clugston reminds everyone the best way to prevent the spread of COVID-19 is to follow AHS guidelines.
