In the wake of the Calgary Impact Security doors being shut down by a virus-caused lockdown, Calgary’s city manager says the city is “working diligently” to make security doors “work better” for Calgaryians.
Calgary Impact Security’s doors, installed to deter thieves from accessing the building’s exterior, were shut down for more than two months because of a virus outbreak.
The city says the virus outbreak was traced to an unverified security breach and the city has since put a security lock on the doors.
The City of Calgary’s security operations team says they are “working hard” to “reinforce” the doors in the hope that the doors will reopen soon.
Security is the city’s first priority for Calgary’s Impact Security Doors, but there are concerns about security on the outside as well.
City Manager Todd Reimer says there are no known incidents in the city that could compromise security.
The security doors are designed to be “a good and safe” solution, but that is the responsibility of the city.
Security measures are being implemented at the impact security door in the City of Edmonton, but Reimer said there are “no indications” that any other Calgary city employees have been infected.
“I would say that the security measures are effective, but we will take our time to get there,” he said.
Reimer says the security doors will be in use for at least two more weeks, though he does not know when.
Security doors in Edmonton are already installed, but not working.
