Local COVID-19 Response

State of Local Emergency (SOLE)

On March 18, 2020, the City of Brooks declared a State of Local Emergency (SOLE) to support the Province of Alberta's efforts to combat the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic. With Royal Assent given to Bill 13, SOLEs that are in effect for pandemics can be in effect for up to 90-days. Given this, the City of Brooks' SOLE was extended to the end of the day on June 30, 2020 at which time it was removed.


Throughout the pandemic, the City of Brooks and Mayor Morishita broadcast video updates and held Live Q&A sessions.
