Those registered in programs and activities at the NexSource Centre are eligible for credits. The credits will be issued to anyone affected by the closure, including art and culture, fitness and recreation programs.

Sylvan Lake Recreation and Culture states all active memberships will be extended upon the facility’s re-opening.

“The Town of Sylvan Lake shares the goals of Alberta Health, which is to try and slow down the spread of COVID-19 within the population, and to minimize its impact,” reads the statement.

To prevent the spread the government and the Town recommends self-isolating if you’re feeling sick, wash your hands frequently, cover coughs and sneezes, and avoid touching your face.
