    On Tuesday night the Government of Alberta announced new restrictions that will see all schools transition to online learning from May 6th – 25th. During this time, all YMCA Before & After School Care Programs must also close. We deeply regret this unplanned closure; however, it is important that our community does what is necessary to keep everyone safe.

    Last night the Government of Alberta announced new restrictions for regions with at least 50 cases per 100,000 people, and at least 30 active cases. The community of Medicine Hat falls within that range. These restrictions are in place for at least 3 weeks and will be extended if necessary
