City of Calgary: Mask Bylaw Survey – Due July 10.

Similar to other Canadian municipalities, The City of Calgary is considering a bylaw that would enact temporary regulations requiring the wearing of masks or face coverings within indoor public premises. For the purpose of the bylaw, public premise means all or any part of a building, structure or other enclosed area to which members of the public have access.

With this consideration, the temporary removal of masks or face coverings would be permitted for the purpose of specified services where required (for example, eating in a restaurant or for recreational purposes).

Please use this survey to provide feedback by July 10 at noon:

City of Calgary: Neighbour Day 2020


Neighbour Day is a yearly celebration of Calgary’s strong community spirit. It started in 2014 in honour of the incredible support and generosity Calgarians showed after the 2013 floods. Now it’s an opportunity to connect with our neighbours, show how we care for each other and celebrate how we make Calgary a great city.


Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it is more important than ever that we connect with our neighbours. But we must do so while practicing physical distancing to keep everyone safe. We are encouraging all Calgarians to plan and host virtual events and try some of the activities at the link below with your neighbours. Share your Neighbour Day celebrations on any social media platform using #yycNeighbourDay for a chance to be featured on City channels.

City of Calgary: water main break at Quarry Gardens


DQCA has received the following from The City of Calgary Water Services:

This note is to inform you that a watermain break has occurred at Quarry Gd SE. Currently there are 20 residential properties experiencing water service disruption.  

This break is considered a high priority and, if necessary, our crews will be working extended hours to get the break repaired as safely and as quickly as possible.

Our goal is to restore water service as soon as possible. Water Services evaluates water main breaks on a priority basis taking into consideration number of people out of water, disruption to traffic and critical services or businesses impacted.

City of Calgary: Yard work, Gardening and Covid-19


When gardening outside, here are a few basic rules for physical distancing to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.

  • Chat with your neighbours from a distance.
  • Sharing bulbs/cuttings or other plants? Create a “sharing zone” where you can put plants. Leave them there for 24 hours before having your neighbour pick them up.
  • Wash your hands before and after gardening, and touching shared items like garden hoses, tools, compost bins, etc.
  • Have a set of basic tools for each person who gardens to reduce contamination:
    • A hand trowel
    • gloves
    • a pailor bucket and,
    • a secateur or loppers.
  • Disinfect/clean tools before and after use.
    • Clean handles protect us from COVID-19,
    • Clean blades protect plants from diseases.
  • If you share a green space or yard (like a semi-detached house or townhouse), create zones in the garden.
    • Give everyone at least six feet of space between each other, and assign parts of the yard or garden to each person.
    • One person/family can mow the lawn while the other remains inside, one person/family can care for trees while another tends flower beds on separate days, etc.
  • To help with distancing and encourage enjoying outdoors, you can set up new spaces where people can sit and be safely distanced.
  • Stay connected through technology. Many local gardening experts and businesses are holding online training events, garden tours, and much more.
