COVID-19 Update for Wednesday, March 25

​As many residents settle into a new normal of working from home and online schooling, the City of Lethbridge continues to provide essential services to residents. We thank everyone for their patience and understanding as we work to manage this important work while protecting the health of staff and public.

Here are the latest City of Lethbridge updates related to COVID-19.

Access-A-Ride Screening
Access-A-Ride booking agents and operators have implemented screening questions before scheduling any pick-ups. Clients calling to book an Access-A-Ride trip will be asked health and travel related questions to ensure the safety of all drivers and passengers and prevent the transmission of COVID-19. Residents are reminded that both Access-a-Ride and conventional transit should only be used for essential travel.

Transit Lost and Found Reduced Hours
On Monday, March 30, the Lethbridge Transit lost and found, located in the Red Arrow office at the Downtown Park 'n' Ride facility, will reduce its hours. The lost and found will only be open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., Mon-Fri. This change is due to the suspension of Red Arrow service and their reduced office hours.

Waste and Recycling Centre
The Waste and Recycling Centre (landfill) remains open at this time but residents are asked to only visit the site if absolutely necessary. If you must come to the Waste and Recycling Centre, remember to practice the appropriate physical distancing, leaving at least two metres between yourself and others. Anyone with flu-like symptoms or who has traveled outside of Canada in the last 14 days should be self-isolating at home.

The Path Less Traveled
As we focus on creating more physical distance with others while enjoying the outdoors, we encourage residents to explore less traveled paths. With over 177 km of paved pathways and approximately 57 km of natural or gravel trails, there is lots of room for everyone. Check out our City pathways or download the Lethbridge Parks App and find a new adventure.

Get Creative
If you have some extra time on your hands, now might be a good time to get creative. The call for artists for Utility Box Wrapping has been extended due to the ongoing response to COVID-19 in our community.

The new submission date for project proposals is Thursday, April 30, 2020. All submissions received to date will still be considered. Additional submissions, from artists who have already submitted and who would like to take advantage of the deadline extension, will also be considered. More information is available at: www.publicartlethbridge.ca/current-calls/
