This May Long Weekend will look a little different

With the Victoria Day Weekend approaching, there are still many public health restrictions in place to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and many businesses and services will be closed.

Unfortunately it won’t be May long weekend cottage life and camping as usual either as all National and Alberta parks are closed to visitors and Parks Canada is recommending to ‘stay home’. If you are planning on heading out, be sure to check your local area rules and regulations beforehand.

Highways through National parks will remain open which means that there will be drivers on the road, particularly our hardworking truckers delivering essential goods, and unfortunately there will still be breakdowns and accidents. Big Rig Towing & Recovery will continue to deliver “critical” services on our highways. If you find yourself in need of rescue, we can be reached 24/7 at 1 (866) 398-7444.

Even though our weekend dreams may be dashed, it’s important to remember that these circumstances aren’t forever. There will be many more long weekends ahead to enjoy when safe to do so, and with everyone working together to get through this, hopefully that time isn’t in the too distant future. Let’s do our part and make the best of our uncertain times.

Have a safe and relaxing long weekend.
