NOTICE: COVID-19 PUBLIC HEALTH MEASURES UPDATE

The Provincial Government has updated the Public Health Measures as of March 9, 2021.

Effective Tuesday, March 9, individual households may create a 'bubble' up to a maximum of ten individuals in a home at any one time.
🔸 The ten individuals should be from two to three consistent households.
🔸 The total number in the gathering cannot be more than ten.
🔸 You must be consistent in your household bubble: the bubble of ten is always the same individuals, from the same households.
🔸 You may not join multiple bubbles.
🔸 Assess the overall risk of COVID-19 before joining households. Does this household have a senior at elevated risk? Children attending school? Adults working outside of the home in essential workplaces? Can you still count all the potential contacts that household makes, in the event that a contact investigation must be done? If the risk of potential transmission remains high, consider another household or remaining within your household.
🔸 If you are 50 years old or greater, consider keeping your contacts to your household only until you are able to be vaccinated.
You must still follow all public health guidelines when outside the home - including the limit of ten people at outdoor gatherings - and plan to be vaccinated when you are eligible. Details on the current public health measures are available at www.saskatchewan.ca/covid19-measures.

Churchbridge Fire Rescue Challenge Coin

Churchbridge Fire Rescue has their own challenge coin! A challenge coin is a small medallion that bears an organization's insignia or emblem and is typically carried by the organization's members. The history of the coin has several stories, most of which have military origins. Historically, they were given to prove membership to an organization, to commemorate a special achievement, exchanged in recognition of a visit and also to enhance morale. In moder day, the rules of the challenge coin have become more relaxed. The coin has become a collectors item, sought after by fellow service memebers and emergency services personnel. The Churchbridge Fire Rescue is selling these challenge coins as a fundraiser for their department. The coins can be purchased for $20 from any member of Churchbridge Fire Rescue and at the Town Office. (Shipping at buyers expense).
