Service updates

The City is committed to taking the necessary steps to prevent the spread of the virus, while also ensuring that we continue providing the services our residents need. This includes, but is not limited to:

Waste collection
  • Garbage, recycling and organics collection continues to be picked up on residents' regular collection day.
Spruce Grove Transit
  • Effective Thursday, April 2, the City of Spruce Grove will temporarily suspend Spruce Grove Transit’s commuter connector shuttle service (Route 566 and Route 567).

  • Fare collection has been temporarily suspended on all Spruce Grove Transit routes. All entry on commuter buses (unless otherwise required) will be through the rear doors only.

  • On Monday, March 30, Spruce Grove Transit Route 562 was permanently cancelled. Route 560 continues to operate on its usual schedule.

Prevent the spread

We continue to ask the community and our staff to practise healthy hygiene habits and social distancing to prevent the spread of germs, including:

  • Wash your hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Do not share water bottles or similar containers.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Routinely clean frequently touched surfaces and objects.
  • Stay home if you are sick.

Practise social distancing in all public situations as this plays an important role in minimizing the spread of the virus. However, this does not mean you must stay inside. Social distancing is not about staying indoors; it’s about maintaining an appropriate distance from others.
