  • Retail, entertainment and recreation facilities

Specific Outcomes for City of St. Albert  

On September 16, 2021, St. Albert City Council held a special Council Meeting to discuss how the new provincial measures affect St. Albert. Council moved to implement the Restriction Exemption Program as soon as reasonably possible with the intent to allow vaccinated users to experience as little disruption as possible to their normal routines and activities. For unvaccinated users 12 and over, a privately paid negative COVID-19 test result must be presented.    

The City of St. Albert is awaiting the provincial public health orders for specific details on how the provincial public health measures, including the Restriction Exemption Program, will affect City facilities, events and programs. More information will be shared, as it becomes available, at stalbert.ca and via the City’s social media channels.
