Magrath issues statement regarding active COVID-19 cases

“There are currently 25 active cases of COVID-19 across the Cardston County area which includes the Blood Tribe, Cardston, and Magrath,” reads a July 28 statement posted on the town’s website. “This is the highest amount of active cases our area has had during the entire pandemic period. Now is a critical window of time for all of us to do our part in preventing the spread. Through our actions of consciously physically distancing ourselves from others and the proactive preventative measure of wearing a mask, each of us individually and all of us together are needed to overcome this locally.”
