Public Washroom Facilities and Playgrounds

Please note: Playgrounds are not being sanitized and public washrooms are being sanitized based on usage. We advise that you use these facilities at your own risk.

All County public washrooms are equipped with alcohol-based hand sanitizer. Please use this before and after you use the washrooms. If you see any problems with one of our County washrooms or recreational spaces, please call 403-782-6601.

We ask that you protect yourself and others by:

  • Staying home if you are sick
  • Practicing physical distancing (at least 2 metres)
  • Practice good hygiene (i.e. wash hands often for at least 20 seconds, cover coughs and sneezes, and avoid touching your face.)
  • Lacombe County administration office and shop are fully opened to the public. Please do not visit our office if you are feeling unwell.
  • Lacombe County’s parks and trails, playgrounds and public washrooms are open.
     

Wash your hands often and well. Wash with warm water and soap to remove both visible dirt and invisible germs. Ensure you wash all parts of your hands, including under fingernails. This should take at least 20 seconds.

  • Wash your hands before preparing or eating food, after using the washroom, blowing your nose, handling garbage, or touching shared objects.
  • Avoid touching your face or mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Cough or sneeze into a tissue and dispose of the tissue into a plastic-lined garbage bin. Wash your hands afterwards. If no tissue is available, cough or sneeze into a flexed elbow.
  • Clean and disinfect surfaces that are frequently touched.

If you need immediate medical attention, call 911 and inform them that you may have COVID-19.
