City of Calgary implements Municipal Emergency Plan amid coronavirus pandemic

In response to the constantly changing COVID-19 situation, the City of Calgary implemented its Municipal Emergency Plan on Thursday afternoon.

In effect as of 1:45 p.m. Thursday, the plan allows officials “to prioritize service delivery and dedicate resources to priority areas,” according to the City of Calgary’s website.

The Calgary Emergency Management Agency (CEMA) also has more ability to “streamline decision making around corporate processes” under the plan.

All city employees who can work from home are now being asked to do so, and officials are working hard to keep those who can’t work from home safe.

“Physical separation and social distancing is important during viral events, and fewer workers in the facilities will allow the city to better protect all employees,” the website said.
