With one new case discovered and three people recovery, Morley has now dropped to just three active cases of COVID-19.

Stoney Health Services has completed 3,833 tests since the beginning of the pandemic. Of the 450 cases confirmed, 447 have recovered. Unfortunately, there have been six deaths attributed to the virus.

Only two months ago, the community had over 200 active cases of the virus, and heightened measures were put in place to turn the tide.

Some of those measures have been loosened, but Stoney Emergency Management still lists the transmission risk as high. 

On Mar. 10, the curfew for Morley was reduced to 12 a.m. to 6 a.m. No house-to-house visits are permitted. Gatherings of any kind, including funerals or wakes, are prohibited.

Starting Mar. 15, Stoney Health Services began administering the COVID-19 vaccine to people 50 and older who live or work on the Stoney Nakoda First Nation. It will be by appointment only and must be booked in advance.

That follows the initial rollout for those 65 and over n February.
