Slave Lake’s sweet spot

You have to wonder how long Slave Lake can remain in its ‘sweet spot,’ with regard to COVID cases. Big outbreaks in Athabasca and High Prairie suggest it’s really a matter of how the dice roll. There’s nothing about our community that makes it any less susceptible. And there’s plenty of ‘relaxed’ behaviour on display. If the bug lands in the right place, things could go sideways in a hurry.

The run of good luck includes the seniors’ lodge. We heard that two staff members were infected, but it just so happened both – being part-time – hadn’t worked for eight or nine days prior to their positive tests. So it wasn’t passed on.

“We dodged another bullet!” is how Slave Lake Regional Housing CEO Lyndsay Pratt put it the other day.
