The Town of Hepburn is closely monitoring developments relating to COVID-19.
On Saturday March 14, 2020, Town Council had a special meeting to address our municipal response to COVID-19. As a Local Government, the Town of Hepburn is taking direction from Provincial & Federal Governments, and the health authorities. Therefore, the decision was made to close the town-owned indoor recreation facilities as a preventative measure to ensure the continued health and safety of the entire community. This closure will be re-evaluated after 14 days. “Hepburn Town Council decided to close the arena and bowling alley in order to do our part to help curb the spread of COVID-19. We did not take this decision lightly, and thoroughly reviewed the actions of other local governments across Saskatchewan.” says Mayor Jeff Peters
The Town of Hepburn Council strongly recommends that residents and organizations do not hold any large social events or gatherings at this time. “Council will not roll the dice and take a chance when it comes to the health, safety, and welfare of our community. We must follow the advice of public health officials.” says Mayor Peters
Direction and advisories from the Federal and Provincial Governments are changing rapidly.
“Our precautionary measures in Hepburn will most certainly change as well. I ask and encourage everyone to remain positive, and to not get discouraged. Let us all work together in responding calmly and effectively to the COVID-19 situation.” (Mayor Peters)
