Update COVID-19 Protocols - Nov 13, 2020

Thank you again for your continued vigilance in helping to keep Shalem a safe place to live during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic! We are grateful that Shalem has not had a COVID-19 case to date and we continue to pray for God’s protection.

As you may have heard, yesterday the province of Alberta issued some additional restrictions in response to the continued rise in daily new cases of COVID-19 in Calgary and Alberta. Here at Shalem, we want to ensure that we are doing everything we can to keep our community safe. We recognize that while in some ways the Residents of Shalem live as one community, the ability for each Resident to ‘come and go’ as they desire increases our risk and exposure.

Update COVID-19 Protocols - Oct 28, 2020

First of all, thank you for your ongoing vigilance in helping to keep Shalem a safe place to live during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

For those of you following the news and COVID-19 updates, you will be aware that the growth rate and daily new case numbers of COVID-19 in Calgary continues to climb sharply. And increasingly more of us are now aware of people within our church, school, friend or family communities who have tested positive for the virus.

As you live in community together, we are striving to keep Shalem a safe place while recognizing the mental and social benefits that come from fellowship with each other. This is not a responsibility we take lightly. However, as we have continued to assess the situation, the decision has been made to implement or re- implement additional restrictions.
