As we try to keep our social distancing game strong, more and more of us are looking at delivery options. We’ve asked local businesses who have delivery services — or have launched delivery services to better serve customers during the COVID-19 pandemic — to reach out and let us know they are out there for you.
But, the situation is fluid, meaning things change rapidly. Check Alberta Health’s website for the latest information on COVID-19 and public safety, and make sure to call ahead if you’re looking for pick-up.
We can’t stress enough that it’s important to heed the directions of public health officials. Thanks for doing your part to support local business and trying to keep yourself and your neighbours safe at the same time.
If you have additions, please let us know. Send us a message on Twitter @edifyedmonton or through the Edify Edmonton Facebook account. Or e-mail our editor at [email protected].
