ABTraceTogether app
Time: 12:00 am

Good morning,

As mentioned in our meeting last week, we would like to request that all municipalities encourage their residents to download the secure ABTraceTogether app. Unlike the federal app, ABTraceTogether is directly integrated with Alberta’s contact tracing system. Notification of exposure is left to health experts to follow up directly with those at risk, support them in their recovery and ensure they isolate. In the time since ABTraceTogether launched, we have made a number of improvements. We updated the app in September to address any privacy concerns and allow it to run in the background on IOS. It can detect interactions between two iPhones while the app is in the background or on a locked iPhone.

The technology in ABTraceTogether has been successfully used in Singapore, Australia and other places to stop the spread of COVID19. And while any app is only one small part of the fight against COVID19, ABTraceTogether remains an effective public health tool.

Thank you,

Alberta Health Emergency Operations Center

ABTraceTogether app
Time: 12:00 am

Good morning,

As mentioned in our meeting last week, we would like to request that all municipalities encourage their residents to download the secure ABTraceTogether app. Unlike the federal app, ABTraceTogether is directly integrated with Alberta’s contact tracing system. Notification of exposure is left to health experts to follow up directly with those at risk, support them in their recovery and ensure they isolate. In the time since ABTraceTogether launched, we have made a number of improvements. We updated the app in September to address any privacy concerns and allow it to run in the background on IOS. It can detect interactions between two iPhones while the app is in the background or on a locked iPhone.

The technology in ABTraceTogether has been successfully used in Singapore, Australia and other places to stop the spread of COVID19. And while any app is only one small part of the fight against COVID19, ABTraceTogether remains an effective public health tool.

Thank you,

ABTraceTogether app
Time: 12:00 am

Good morning,

As mentioned in our meeting last week, we would like to request that all municipalities encourage their residents to download the secure ABTraceTogether app. Unlike the federal app, ABTraceTogether is directly integrated with Alberta’s contact tracing system. Notification of exposure is left to health experts to follow up directly with those at risk, support them in their recovery and ensure they isolate. In the time since ABTraceTogether launched, we have made a number of improvements. We updated the app in September to address any privacy concerns and allow it to run in the background on IOS. It can detect interactions between two iPhones while the app is in the background or on a locked iPhone.

The technology in ABTraceTogether has been successfully used in Singapore, Australia and other places to stop the spread of COVID19. And while any app is only one small part of the fight against COVID19, ABTraceTogether remains an effective public health tool.

The Tamarack Health Advisory Council (HAC) invite local and area residents to participate in one of two virtual training sessions: Transform Your Stress: The Resilience Advantage - Strategies for Managing Stress in Challenging Times for residents in the Tamarack region.

The Transform Your Stress training is free and is designed for everyone, including professionals and community members. Since the onset of COVID-19, many Albertans have identified feeling stressed. This online introductory webinar provides a basic discussion of stress and looks at different ways to manage it, including two HeartMath® breathing techniques.


The goal for this event is to build awareness of the psychosocial factors that can help people to be psychologically healthy and safe. It is hoped that through this workshop participants will build an understanding of the impact of emotions on the body and how to develop an action plan to address their own stress.


We hope you will join us for one of these free sessions and be part of a community effort to improve the wellness of our friends, family and colleagues across the region. These free sessions will be held by Zoom, participants must pre-register using the links below.

ABTraceTogether app
Time: 12:00 am

Good morning,

As mentioned in our meeting last week, we would like to request that all municipalities encourage their residents to download the secure ABTraceTogether app. Unlike the federal app, ABTraceTogether is directly integrated with Alberta’s contact tracing system. Notification of exposure is left to health experts to follow up directly with those at risk, support them in their recovery and ensure they isolate. In the time since ABTraceTogether launched, we have made a number of improvements. We updated the app in September to address any privacy concerns and allow it to run in the background on IOS. It can detect interactions between two iPhones while the app is in the background or on a locked iPhone.

The technology in ABTraceTogether has been successfully used in Singapore, Australia and other places to stop the spread of COVID19. And while any app is only one small part of the fight against COVID19, ABTraceTogether remains an effective public health tool.

Thank you,

The Tamarack Health Advisory Council (HAC) invite local and area residents to participate in one of two virtual training sessions: Transform Your Stress: The Resilience Advantage - Strategies for Managing Stress in Challenging Times for residents in the Tamarack region.

The Transform Your Stress training is free and is designed for everyone, including professionals and community members. Since the onset of COVID-19, many Albertans have identified feeling stressed. This online introductory webinar provides a basic discussion of stress and looks at different ways to manage it, including two HeartMath® breathing techniques.


The goal for this event is to build awareness of the psychosocial factors that can help people to be psychologically healthy and safe. It is hoped that through this workshop participants will build an understanding of the impact of emotions on the body and how to develop an action plan to address their own stress.


We hope you will join us for one of these free sessions and be part of a community effort to improve the wellness of our friends, family and colleagues across the region. These free sessions will be held by Zoom, participants must pre-register using the links below.

Village Stainless Steel MailBox
Time: 12:00 am

The Village has a stainless steel mailbox way on the left of the Canada Post mailboxes at the Noyes Store.  Lately, all sorts of mail have been dropped in this mailbox - this is a FINAL REMINDER that this mail will not be forwarded.  This mailbox is strictly for Sandy Beach tax payments ONLY.  

Standstone Vacuum Services payments should be mailed directly to the vendor by putting the envelope into the CANADA POST mail slots.  Christmas Cards should be dropped in the Canada Post mailboxes and so should anything that is your mail, unless it is a tax payment to Sandy Beach.

This mailbox is not checked on a regular basis and your mail will be your own liability.

This is a final reminder.

Thank you for your cooperation.

ABTraceTogether app
Time: 12:00 am

Good morning,

As mentioned in our meeting last week, we would like to request that all municipalities encourage their residents to download the secure ABTraceTogether app. Unlike the federal app, ABTraceTogether is directly integrated with Alberta’s contact tracing system. Notification of exposure is left to health experts to follow up directly with those at risk, support them in their recovery and ensure they isolate. In the time since ABTraceTogether launched, we have made a number of improvements. We updated the app in September to address any privacy concerns and allow it to run in the background on IOS. It can detect interactions between two iPhones while the app is in the background or on a locked iPhone.

The technology in ABTraceTogether has been successfully used in Singapore, Australia and other places to stop the spread of COVID19. And while any app is only one small part of the fight against COVID19, ABTraceTogether remains an effective public health tool.

Thank you,

With immediate effect Alexander First Nation has suspended all travel through privileges (on ALL their roads/checkpoints) to everyone who does not live in the nation.  This health order is being upheld not only to protect non-residents, the residents of Sandy Beach, but also ALL Alexander First Nation's residents, their families, children, elders, knowledge-keepers, essential staff and elected officials as well.

ABTraceTogether app
Time: 12:00 am

Good morning,

As mentioned in our meeting last week, we would like to request that all municipalities encourage their residents to download the secure ABTraceTogether app. Unlike the federal app, ABTraceTogether is directly integrated with Alberta’s contact tracing system. Notification of exposure is left to health experts to follow up directly with those at risk, support them in their recovery and ensure they isolate. In the time since ABTraceTogether launched, we have made a number of improvements. We updated the app in September to address any privacy concerns and allow it to run in the background on IOS. It can detect interactions between two iPhones while the app is in the background or on a locked iPhone.

The technology in ABTraceTogether has been successfully used in Singapore, Australia and other places to stop the spread of COVID19. And while any app is only one small part of the fight against COVID19, ABTraceTogether remains an effective public health tool.

Thank you,

Alberta Health Emergency Operations Center

Time: 12:00 am

The Tamarack Health Advisory Council (HAC) invite local and area residents to participate in one of two virtual training sessions: Transform Your Stress: The Resilience Advantage - Strategies for Managing Stress in Challenging Times for residents in the Tamarack region.

ABTraceTogether app
Time: 12:00 am

Good morning,

As mentioned in our meeting last week, we would like to request that all municipalities encourage their residents to download the secure ABTraceTogether app. Unlike the federal app, ABTraceTogether is directly integrated with Alberta’s contact tracing system. Notification of exposure is left to health experts to follow up directly with those at risk, support them in their recovery and ensure they isolate. In the time since ABTraceTogether launched, we have made a number of improvements. We updated the app in September to address any privacy concerns and allow it to run in the background on IOS. It can detect interactions between two iPhones while the app is in the background or on a locked iPhone.

The technology in ABTraceTogether has been successfully used in Singapore, Australia and other places to stop the spread of COVID19. And while any app is only one small part of the fight against COVID19, ABTraceTogether remains an effective public health tool.

Thank you,

COVID restrictions: Nominees are required to call 780.967.2873/text 780.718.1894 (cell) or email cao.svsandyb@xplornet.ca (the appointed Returning Officer for 2021 elections) and BOOK an appointment to drop off or pick up anything related to this municipal election.  Do NOT phone or contact us 5 minutes prior - make sure you set up a meeting well in advance so the necessary arrangements can be made.

SUSPENDED: Access RR779 south through Alexander checkpoint
Time: 12:00 am

April 8 @ 5.30pm

With immediate effect Alexander First Nation has suspended all travel through privileges (on ALL their roads/checkpoints) to everyone who does not live in the nation.  This health order is being upheld not only to protect non-residents, the residents of Sandy Beach, but also ALL Alexander First Nation's residents, their families, children, elders, knowledge-keepers, essential staff and elected officials as well.   

RR12 through Sunrise Beach is by far the best, shortest and easiest way to get to the Stony Plain end in anyway (please follow all current health orders, wherever you are in Alberta, and wear a mask).

ABTraceTogether app
Time: 12:00 am

Good morning,

As mentioned in our meeting last week, we would like to request that all municipalities encourage their residents to download the secure ABTraceTogether app. Unlike the federal app, ABTraceTogether is directly integrated with Alberta’s contact tracing system. Notification of exposure is left to health experts to follow up directly with those at risk, support them in their recovery and ensure they isolate. In the time since ABTraceTogether launched, we have made a number of improvements. We updated the app in September to address any privacy concerns and allow it to run in the background on IOS. It can detect interactions between two iPhones while the app is in the background or on a locked iPhone.

The technology in ABTraceTogether has been successfully used in Singapore, Australia and other places to stop the spread of COVID19. And while any app is only one small part of the fight against COVID19, ABTraceTogether remains an effective public health tool.

Thank you,

Alberta Health Emergency Operations Center

ABTraceTogether app
Time: 12:00 am

Good morning,

As mentioned in our meeting last week, we would like to request that all municipalities encourage their residents to download the secure ABTraceTogether app. Unlike the federal app, ABTraceTogether is directly integrated with Alberta’s contact tracing system. Notification of exposure is left to health experts to follow up directly with those at risk, support them in their recovery and ensure they isolate. In the time since ABTraceTogether launched, we have made a number of improvements. We updated the app in September to address any privacy concerns and allow it to run in the background on IOS. It can detect interactions between two iPhones while the app is in the background or on a locked iPhone.

The technology in ABTraceTogether has been successfully used in Singapore, Australia and other places to stop the spread of COVID19. And while any app is only one small part of the fight against COVID19, ABTraceTogether remains an effective public health tool.

Thank you,

Alberta Health Emergency Operations Center

Time: 12:00 am

The Tamarack Health Advisory Council (HAC) invite local and area residents to participate in one of two virtual training sessions: Transform Your Stress: The Resilience Advantage - Strategies for Managing Stress in Challenging Times for residents in the Tamarack region.

The Transform Your Stress training is free and is designed for everyone, including professionals and community members. Since the onset of COVID-19, many Albertans have identified feeling stressed. This online introductory webinar provides a basic discussion of stress and looks at different ways to manage it, including two HeartMath® breathing techniques.


The goal for this event is to build awareness of the psychosocial factors that can help people to be psychologically healthy and safe. It is hoped that through this workshop participants will build an understanding of the impact of emotions on the body and how to develop an action plan to address their own stress.


We hope you will join us for one of these free sessions and be part of a community effort to improve the wellness of our friends, family and colleagues across the region. These free sessions will be held by Zoom, participants must pre-register using the links below.

ABTraceTogether app
Time: 12:00 am

Good morning,

As mentioned in our meeting last week, we would like to request that all municipalities encourage their residents to download the secure ABTraceTogether app. Unlike the federal app, ABTraceTogether is directly integrated with Alberta’s contact tracing system. Notification of exposure is left to health experts to follow up directly with those at risk, support them in their recovery and ensure they isolate. In the time since ABTraceTogether launched, we have made a number of improvements. We updated the app in September to address any privacy concerns and allow it to run in the background on IOS. It can detect interactions between two iPhones while the app is in the background or on a locked iPhone.

The technology in ABTraceTogether has been successfully used in Singapore, Australia and other places to stop the spread of COVID19. And while any app is only one small part of the fight against COVID19, ABTraceTogether remains an effective public health tool.

Thank you,

Alberta Health Emergency Operations Center

The Tamarack Health Advisory Council (HAC) invite local and area residents to participate in one of two virtual training sessions: Transform Your Stress: The Resilience Advantage - Strategies for Managing Stress in Challenging Times for residents in the Tamarack region.

The Transform Your Stress training is free and is designed for everyone, including professionals and community members. Since the onset of COVID-19, many Albertans have identified feeling stressed. This online introductory webinar provides a basic discussion of stress and looks at different ways to manage it, including two HeartMath® breathing techniques.


The goal for this event is to build awareness of the psychosocial factors that can help people to be psychologically healthy and safe. It is hoped that through this workshop participants will build an understanding of the impact of emotions on the body and how to develop an action plan to address their own stress.


We hope you will join us for one of these free sessions and be part of a community effort to improve the wellness of our friends, family and colleagues across the region. These free sessions will be held by Zoom, participants must pre-register using the links below.

ABTraceTogether app
Time: 12:00 am

Good morning,

As mentioned in our meeting last week, we would like to request that all municipalities encourage their residents to download the secure ABTraceTogether app. Unlike the federal app, ABTraceTogether is directly integrated with Alberta’s contact tracing system. Notification of exposure is left to health experts to follow up directly with those at risk, support them in their recovery and ensure they isolate. In the time since ABTraceTogether launched, we have made a number of improvements. We updated the app in September to address any privacy concerns and allow it to run in the background on IOS. It can detect interactions between two iPhones while the app is in the background or on a locked iPhone.

The technology in ABTraceTogether has been successfully used in Singapore, Australia and other places to stop the spread of COVID19. And while any app is only one small part of the fight against COVID19, ABTraceTogether remains an effective public health tool.

Thank you,

Alberta Health Emergency Operations Center

ABTraceTogether app
Time: 12:00 am

Good morning,

As mentioned in our meeting last week, we would like to request that all municipalities encourage their residents to download the secure ABTraceTogether app. Unlike the federal app, ABTraceTogether is directly integrated with Alberta’s contact tracing system. Notification of exposure is left to health experts to follow up directly with those at risk, support them in their recovery and ensure they isolate. In the time since ABTraceTogether launched, we have made a number of improvements. We updated the app in September to address any privacy concerns and allow it to run in the background on IOS. It can detect interactions between two iPhones while the app is in the background or on a locked iPhone.

The technology in ABTraceTogether has been successfully used in Singapore, Australia and other places to stop the spread of COVID19. And while any app is only one small part of the fight against COVID19, ABTraceTogether remains an effective public health tool.

Thank you,

Alberta Health Emergency Operations Center

Time: 12:00 am

The Tamarack Health Advisory Council (HAC) invite local and area residents to participate in one of two virtual training sessions: Transform Your Stress: The Resilience Advantage - Strategies for Managing Stress in Challenging Times for residents in the Tamarack region.

The Transform Your Stress training is free and is designed for everyone, including professionals and community members. Since the onset of COVID-19, many Albertans have identified feeling stressed. This online introductory webinar provides a basic discussion of stress and looks at different ways to manage it, including two HeartMath® breathing techniques.


The goal for this event is to build awareness of the psychosocial factors that can help people to be psychologically healthy and safe. It is hoped that through this workshop participants will build an understanding of the impact of emotions on the body and how to develop an action plan to address their own stress.


We hope you will join us for one of these free sessions and be part of a community effort to improve the wellness of our friends, family and colleagues across the region. These free sessions will be held by Zoom, participants must pre-register using the links below.

ABTraceTogether app
Time: 12:00 am

Good morning,

As mentioned in our meeting last week, we would like to request that all municipalities encourage their residents to download the secure ABTraceTogether app. Unlike the federal app, ABTraceTogether is directly integrated with Alberta’s contact tracing system. Notification of exposure is left to health experts to follow up directly with those at risk, support them in their recovery and ensure they isolate. In the time since ABTraceTogether launched, we have made a number of improvements. We updated the app in September to address any privacy concerns and allow it to run in the background on IOS. It can detect interactions between two iPhones while the app is in the background or on a locked iPhone.

The technology in ABTraceTogether has been successfully used in Singapore, Australia and other places to stop the spread of COVID19. And while any app is only one small part of the fight against COVID19, ABTraceTogether remains an effective public health tool.

Thank you,

Alberta Health Emergency Operations Center

SUSPENDED: Access RR779 south through Alexander checkpoint
Time: 12:00 am

April 8 @ 5.30pm

With immediate effect Alexander First Nation has suspended all travel through privileges (on ALL their roads/checkpoints) to everyone who does not live in the nation.  This health order is being upheld not only to protect non-residents, the residents of Sandy Beach, but also ALL Alexander First Nation's residents, their families, children, elders, knowledge-keepers, essential staff and elected officials as well.   

RR12 through Sunrise Beach is by far the best, shortest and easiest way to get to the Stony Plain end in anyway (please follow all current health orders, wherever you are in Alberta, and wear a mask).

Village Stainless Steel MailBox
Time: 12:00 am

The Village has a stainless steel mailbox way on the left of the Canada Post mailboxes at the Noyes Store.  Lately, all sorts of mail have been dropped in this mailbox - this is a FINAL REMINDER that this mail will not be forwarded.  This mailbox is strictly for Sandy Beach tax payments ONLY.  

Standstone Vacuum Services payments should be mailed directly to the vendor by putting the envelope into the CANADA POST mail slots.  Christmas Cards should be dropped in the Canada Post mailboxes and so should anything that is your mail, unless it is a tax payment to Sandy Beach.

This is a final reminder.

Thank you for your cooperation.

ABTraceTogether app
Time: 12:00 am

Good morning,

As mentioned in our meeting last week, we would like to request that all municipalities encourage their residents to download the secure ABTraceTogether app. Unlike the federal app, ABTraceTogether is directly integrated with Alberta’s contact tracing system. Notification of exposure is left to health experts to follow up directly with those at risk, support them in their recovery and ensure they isolate. In the time since ABTraceTogether launched, we have made a number of improvements. We updated the app in September to address any privacy concerns and allow it to run in the background on IOS. It can detect interactions between two iPhones while the app is in the background or on a locked iPhone.

The technology in ABTraceTogether has been successfully used in Singapore, Australia and other places to stop the spread of COVID19. And while any app is only one small part of the fight against COVID19, ABTraceTogether remains an effective public health tool.

Thank you,

ABTraceTogether app
Time: 12:00 am

Good morning,

As mentioned in our meeting last week, we would like to request that all municipalities encourage their residents to download the secure ABTraceTogether app. Unlike the federal app, ABTraceTogether is directly integrated with Alberta’s contact tracing system. Notification of exposure is left to health experts to follow up directly with those at risk, support them in their recovery and ensure they isolate. In the time since ABTraceTogether launched, we have made a number of improvements. We updated the app in September to address any privacy concerns and allow it to run in the background on IOS. It can detect interactions between two iPhones while the app is in the background or on a locked iPhone.

The technology in ABTraceTogether has been successfully used in Singapore, Australia and other places to stop the spread of COVID19. And while any app is only one small part of the fight against COVID19, ABTraceTogether remains an effective public health tool.

Thank you,

ABTraceTogether app
Time: 12:00 am

Good morning,

As mentioned in our meeting last week, we would like to request that all municipalities encourage their residents to download the secure ABTraceTogether app. Unlike the federal app, ABTraceTogether is directly integrated with Alberta’s contact tracing system. Notification of exposure is left to health experts to follow up directly with those at risk, support them in their recovery and ensure they isolate. In the time since ABTraceTogether launched, we have made a number of improvements. We updated the app in September to address any privacy concerns and allow it to run in the background on IOS. It can detect interactions between two iPhones while the app is in the background or on a locked iPhone.

The technology in ABTraceTogether has been successfully used in Singapore, Australia and other places to stop the spread of COVID19. And while any app is only one small part of the fight against COVID19, ABTraceTogether remains an effective public health tool.

Thank you,

Alberta Health Emergency Operations Center

The Village has a stainless steel mailbox way on the left of the Canada Post mailboxes at the Noyes Store.  Lately, all sorts of mail have been dropped in this mailbox - this is a FINAL REMINDER that this mail will not be forwarded.  This mailbox is strictly for Sandy Beach tax payments ONLY.  

Standstone Vacuum Services payments should be mailed directly to the vendor by putting the envelope into the CANADA POST mail slots.  Christmas Cards should be dropped in the Canada Post mailboxes and so should anything that is your mail, unless it is a tax payment to Sandy Beach.

This mailbox is not checked on a regular basis and your mail will be your own liability.

This is a final reminder.

Thank you for your cooperation.

ABTraceTogether app
Time: 12:00 am

Good morning,

As mentioned in our meeting last week, we would like to request that all municipalities encourage their residents to download the secure ABTraceTogether app. Unlike the federal app, ABTraceTogether is directly integrated with Alberta’s contact tracing system. Notification of exposure is left to health experts to follow up directly with those at risk, support them in their recovery and ensure they isolate. In the time since ABTraceTogether launched, we have made a number of improvements. We updated the app in September to address any privacy concerns and allow it to run in the background on IOS. It can detect interactions between two iPhones while the app is in the background or on a locked iPhone.

The technology in ABTraceTogether has been successfully used in Singapore, Australia and other places to stop the spread of COVID19. And while any app is only one small part of the fight against COVID19, ABTraceTogether remains an effective public health tool.

Thank you,

Alberta Health Emergency Operations Center

ABTraceTogether app
Time: 12:00 am

Good morning,

As mentioned in our meeting last week, we would like to request that all municipalities encourage their residents to download the secure ABTraceTogether app. Unlike the federal app, ABTraceTogether is directly integrated with Alberta’s contact tracing system. Notification of exposure is left to health experts to follow up directly with those at risk, support them in their recovery and ensure they isolate. In the time since ABTraceTogether launched, we have made a number of improvements. We updated the app in September to address any privacy concerns and allow it to run in the background on IOS. It can detect interactions between two iPhones while the app is in the background or on a locked iPhone.

The technology in ABTraceTogether has been successfully used in Singapore, Australia and other places to stop the spread of COVID19. And while any app is only one small part of the fight against COVID19, ABTraceTogether remains an effective public health tool.

Thank you,

ABTraceTogether app
Time: 12:00 am

Good morning,

As mentioned in our meeting last week, we would like to request that all municipalities encourage their residents to download the secure ABTraceTogether app. Unlike the federal app, ABTraceTogether is directly integrated with Alberta’s contact tracing system. Notification of exposure is left to health experts to follow up directly with those at risk, support them in their recovery and ensure they isolate. In the time since ABTraceTogether launched, we have made a number of improvements. We updated the app in September to address any privacy concerns and allow it to run in the background on IOS. It can detect interactions between two iPhones while the app is in the background or on a locked iPhone.

The technology in ABTraceTogether has been successfully used in Singapore, Australia and other places to stop the spread of COVID19. And while any app is only one small part of the fight against COVID19, ABTraceTogether remains an effective public health tool.

Thank you,

Alberta Health Emergency Operations Center
