Alberta is now in Stage 3 of the Open for Summer Plan. All public health measures have been lifted except in specific settings.
Stage 3 began on July 1, 2021. Learn more about the plan.
What has changed?
All public health measures have now been lifted except for isolation/quarantine requirements and masking requirements in health care settings and public transit. This includes all restrictions on:
- social gatherings – there are no longer capacity limits on either indoor or outdoor gatherings
- recreation, performance and entertainment activities
- business closures and capacity restrictions
- large events, including concerts, sporting events, exhibitions and festivals
The AFA encourages its stakeholders to consult with measures and restrictions outlined at www.alberta.ca/enhanced-public-health-measures.aspx. Alberta Health may update policies and protocols listed on this page without notifying the AFA.
In Stage 3, businesses can resume the same operations and level of activity as they were able to do before the pandemic began.
- See general guidance for COVID-19 and other respiratory illnesses for optional mitigations to protect the health of your staff and customers.
