Mayor Spearman's Statement regarding travel restrictions

​We know, as the pandemic wears on and restrictions remain in place, people are getting frustrated. The recent information of politicians having travelled out of country during the Christmas break has added to that frustration. I would ask that constituents concerned about this issue contact their MLA.

I want to focus on what we are doing locally and commend the sacrifices Lethbridge residents have made to keep everyone safe. In the past two weeks we have made great progress together in flattening the curve and reducing the number of cases in Lethbridge. Myself and all members of Lethbridge City Council remain committed to this important task. I can confirm that no one on Council has traveled outside of Canada since travel advisories were put in place last March. We know visits to see friends and family and travel vacations will still be there when we come out of this pandemic and that the most important thing right now is the safety of our community.

Thank you for staying vigilant and following the public health orders and I encourage everyone to continue to take the restrictions seriously.
