Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses found mostly in animals. In humans, they can cause diseases ranging from the common cold to more severe diseases such as Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) and Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS). The disease caused by the new coronavirus has been named COVID-19.
COVID-19 was first identified in late 2019. It was declared a global pandemic by the World Health Organization in March 2020.
The Town of Devon Office reopened to the public on Monday, June 14, 2021. Residents that would prefer to do their business with the Town staff remotely can still do so by contacting our office:

The provincial government has ended the Restrictions Exemption Program as of Tuesday, Feb. 8 at 11:59 p.m.

COVID-19 vaccines are safe, effective and save lives. The vaccine helps prevent you from getting infected and protects you from getting severely sick if you do get it. Albertans are being vaccinated as fast as supply allows. This is happening in phases so people most at risk get it first. More groups will be eligible as we get more doses.
Until most Albertans are protected by the vaccine, we must continue following all public health guidelines: keep 2 metres apart, wash your hands, wear a mask in public, and stay home when sick.
There are a number of measures that can be taken to to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and protect yourself and others.
If you have symptoms or known exposure to COVID-19, please stay home and book a testing appointment online with the AHS assessment tool or call Health Link 811.
Additional information on COVID-19 is available from both the provincial and federal governments.
