New temporary measures to reduce transmission and protect our health care system come into effect starting September 20.


Temporary measures include capacity and operating restrictions unless in-scope businesses, entities and organizers participate in the Restrictions Exemption Program. Masks are mandatory in all indoor public spaces, workplaces, and places of worship.

Updated general guidance offering optional mitigations to reduce the transmission risk of COVID-19 and other respiratory illnesses is available to businesses and event organizers who would like to continue additional precautions. Sector-specific guidance from previous stages of Alberta’s reopening is also available for additional reference.

The information and suggestions outlined in these documents are optional, and it is up to the individual business to determine what measures, if any, to implement.
