Public Health Measures

On March 1, Alberta entered Step 2 of the Province’s staged easing of measures. As such, the following measures were updated at City facilities:  

  • Capacity limitations were lifted for venues.  
  • Indoor masking is no longer required, except in high-risk settings (i.e., public transit).  
    • Note: Masking may remain in place at St. Albert fire halls, due to the nature of the third-party contracts in place at these facilities.  

For complete details on Step 2, visit the Government of Alberta’s COVID-19 Public Health Actions webpage.   

NEW City Standards  

Throughout the pandemic, the City has been reviewing best practices and has set new standards that are being continued:  

  • City facilities and transit buses are being cleaned a minimum of once per day.   
  • Permanent plexiglass barriers at front counters and in transit.  
  • Provision of hand sanitizer in City facilities.   
  • Livestreaming of Council meetings.   
  • Enhanced air filtration practices at City facilities.   
  • Hybrid/remote work opportunities for employees.  

The City and its employees continue to follow internal safety protocols that include COVID-19 and any provincial public health measures still in place. We are ready to move forward with hope and resilience. The City will remain nimble as we transition our efforts to a more sustainable long-term management of COVID-19.  

Moving Forward, Together  

Let’s continue to take care of each other and remember to:  

  • Respect different approaches, opinions & levels of comfort on  
    • Face coverings  
    • Physical distancing  
  • Be courteous, patient and kind  
  • Communicate openly and often  
  • Stay safe and healthy  
  • Smile & enjoy our time together  

As we shift to living with COVID-19, there is a continuing need for personal responsibility regarding self-monitoring. It is important for individuals to assess their own risk and comfort levels, and to take appropriate action if they feel unwell.  

The health and safety of our residents, patrons and staff remains a top priority for the City. Please continue to be patient and kind to one another.
