Mayor Don Iveson and interim city manager Adam Laughlin will provide an update Thursday on the state of local emergency and the City of Edmonton’s ongoing response to the novel coronavirus pandemic.
Council also discussed the option of ordering the closure of personal services like hair salons and massage parlors, because given the nature of the businesses, they could not abide by social distancing rules .
Iveson, who is in self-isolation because he has symptoms similar to a cold or a flu, will join the news conference remotely via a livestream, while Laughlin will be at city hall in person.
