Mandatory Face Coverings

The City’s priority is the health, safety and well-being of its residents, staff and visitors.

As of August 1, face coverings are required inside any civic facility, which includes Servus Credit Union Place, Fountain Park Recreation Centre (when it reopened on August 4), and Jarome Iginla Arena and Kinex Arena (when the arenas reopen on August 10, 2020).

As of August 8, face coverings will be required at all indoor public spaces within St. Albert. Indoor public places include any property accessible by the public, such as retail locations, recreation centres, restaurants, entertainment venues, transit shelters (semi-enclosed and enclosed) as well as vehicles for hire.

Face coverings are not required while patrons are swimming or exercising in designated areas of City facilities. However, once these activities have concluded we ask guests to please wear their face coverings in public and common areas, including change rooms, before exiting the facility.

More information, including other exceptions to the bylaw, can be found at stalbert.ca/facecovers.
