Update on the City of St. Albert's Response to COVID-19

Update for June 11, 2020 

The City of St. Albert is taking a thoughtful and measured approach to help contain the spread of COVID-19 in our community. Please note: due to the rapidly changing COVID-19 situation, this information is considered current as of the date of distribution. In an effort to keep residents and visitors informed, below is a summary of some current information to be aware of.

COVID-19 Emergency Management Advisory Committee

At its June 11, 2020 meeting, the Emergency Management Advisory Committee set out six guiding principles for Administration to take into consideration when planning for recreational and cultural facility reopenings:

  • Outdoor facilities will be prioritized over indoor, to the extent feasible
  • Facilities will be brought back when they are ready, using cost-recovery to the extent possible
  • Identify what regional partners are doing and consider the impacts of our decisions
  • Where possible, prioritize re-openings to meet the demand of user-groups
  • Impacts to service levels and resource capacity will be considered
  • Organizational risk and responsibilities

Administration will present a Master Plan for facility relaunch using these guiding principles at the June 18, 2020 Emergency Management Advisory Committee.

The City’s priority will also be to safeguard the health and safety of our staff and patrons as we plan to reopen both recreation and cultural facilities.

Please check the City’s website and social media for updates and further information. The City thanks its residents and patrons as we work through our response to COVID-19.
