“I ask that the community as a whole work together and continue to be diligent on following provincial health guidelines and preventative measures,” added Whitecourt Mayor Maryann Chichak.

We ask for everyone to choose kindness, and that Whitecourt residents, businesses and visitors treat each other with respect when it comes to wearing a mask in public spaces. Learn more about the province-wide mandatory mask  requirement and how to properly wear a mask at
