Vulcan County is the latest region to be added to the province’s COVID-19 watch list.

Right now, there are 18 active cases in that county among a population of just over 9,000 residents.

A letter issued Tuesday (Sept. 1) by the Vulcan County Regional Emergency Management Partnership says an outbreak at the Old Colony Seniors Facility in the Village of Carmangay is of particular concern.

Right now, 16 of the 18 total cases within Vulcan County have been reported at that one facility.

I started my radio career in 2015, shortly after graduating from Lethbridge College. I have a very strong passion for local news.

Proudly born in 1994, I grew up most of my life in Sylvan Lake, AB and I’ve lived in the Lethbridge since 2012. I’m a below average golfer on a good day, I take as many hiking trips to Waterton as possible in the summer and I love my two cats, Outlaw and Jynx, and my dog, Maverick, more than most people I know.

I look forward to providing accurate, timely news coverage in southern Alberta for plenty of years to come!
