Dear residents, members, and families of our fabulous Twin Brooks Community,

I trust you are doing as well as can be during this unparalleled time.

Our community continues to be resilient as we do our best to follow Alberta Health Services public health orders, the advice of Chief Medial Officer of Health, Dr. Deena Hinshaw, and the guidelines set by our provincial and civic governments as we navigate the COVID-19 pandemic.

Despite the recent re-opening of some businesses and amenities in our city during "Phase 2", The Twin Brooks Community League Board of Directors voted as a majority at our recent board meeting to keep the Twin Brooks Community League Centre and rink CLOSED until further notice.

Whilst it is the discretion of each community league to decide whether to open these type of amenities with caution, the TBCL cannot guarantee proper social distancing, sanitizing of surfaces, the wearing of Personal Protective Equipment and personal masks by persons whom may use the facility or rink.

These are risks the TBCL cannot take owing to seriousness of impact COVID-19 infection has on our society.

"Alberta's chief medical officer of health reported 46 new cases of COVID-19 in the province Friday, June 19th, and no new deaths.

Whilst the number of active cases in Alberta has remained relatively stable, Edmonton numbers continue to rise steadily.

Edmonton now has almost the same number of active cases to Calgary, Dr. Deena Hinshaw said at a news conference.

There are 512 active cases in the province, 173 more than two weeks ago, Hinshaw said.

Across the province, 39 people are in hospital with the disease, including six in intensive care. The number of deaths remains at 152."

Here is a regional breakdown of active cases across the province:

Calgary zone: 233
Edmonton zone: 211
Central zone: 3
South zone: 30
North zone: 32
Unknown: 3

The Twin Brooks Community League will re-assess this decision as social and health conditions change with respect to the recent uptick in COVID-19 positive cases.

Please check our website for updates.

We wish you a happy and safe summer whilst practicing social distancing and safe public health practices.

On behalf of the Twin Brooks Community League Board of Directors

-Mike

PUBLIC NOTICE: TWIN BROOKS COMMUNITY LEAGUE - March 12, 2020

 

The Twin Brook Community League is conservative and cautious about the potential spread of the Coronavirus/COVID-19.

In the past 24-48 hours, there has been a significant acceleration of concern and published documents about how to mitigate potential outbreaks. 

Social-distancing” is high on the list of recommendations. 

Out of caution and prudence, the Twin Brooks Community League has suspended all community hall rentals and social events until further notice.

Precautions are necessary and we encourage our community to follow the recommendations of the  CDC (Centre for Disease Control), Alberta Health Services, and World Health Organization.

The link below offers recommendations and information from the Government of Alberta on COVID-19:

There will be frequent updates as we learn more from the CDC, and I encourage you to stay informed yourselves.

Twin Brooks Community League Services will responsibly resume once it is deemed socially safe to do so. 

The TBCL Board of Director's thanks you for your understanding. 

 

Sincerely, 

Mike Lanteigne, G.G.XII., C.R.C.

WHY BECOME A Community League MEMBER?

Did you know that Community League facilities are managed and operated completely by COMMUNITY VOLUNTEERS?  The City of Edmonton provides the land and contributes some programs and resources, but the City does NOT manage or maintain any of our facilities (hall or rink).  Work is done by community volunteers and most funds are via volunteer fundraising projects.  Want to have a nice ice surface to skate on?  JOIN US.  Any help would be greatly appreciated by those who are already spending countless hours volunteering their time to provide this to the community. There are many other opportunities to help out too. But the FIRST and foremost important thing: Become a member.  Community League membership is the foundation of all this, and it's literally pennies per day (now rounded off to nickels, of course 🤣).  We look forward to seeing you!

CANNABIS USE AROUND COMMUNITY LEAGUE FACILITIES: 

The use of tobacco and cannabis (smoking, vaping, etc.) is prohibited within 10 metres of parkland space which contains a school, community centre, parking lot, playground, rink, or sports field.  
Basically, you can not use tobacco or cannabis anywhere in the entire park space around the community league facilities and school. Best to stay at home to do your smoking and/or vaping.

You can refer to City of Edmonton Bylaw 14614 (Public Places) for more details.  Community League facilities are monitored by security resources including recorded video 24 hours per day.
