Masking

Mask use in public indoor settings is no longer required except for some specific situations:

  • working in or visiting some health care settings, such as long-term care
  • using public transit, including ride share vehicles, taxis, motor coaches and shuttles
  • Municipalities and businesses are free to set masking requirements as they see fit. For example, businesses may require staff and/or customers to wear masks inside their place of business.
Isolation and quarantine requirements 
Health care and congregate care settings
  • Alberta’s move to Stage 3 does not change requirements in the existing public health orders for licensed supportive living, long-term care and hospice settings. Refer to protecting residents in care.

All other public health measures have been lifted.

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

Self-isolation

Learn more about who is required to self-isolate, how to self-isolate and how to prepare here.

If you are in self-isolation, you must follow these steps:

  • Do not go to work, other public areas or community settings.
  • Do not go outside for a walk through your neighbourhood or park. (This includes children in mandatory self-isolation.)
  • You can get fresh air in your yard, if you have one, but must remain on private property not accessible by others.
  • If you live in an apartment or condo building, you must stay inside and cannot use the elevators or stairwells to go outside. If your balcony is private and at least two metres away from your closest neighbour’s, you may go outside on the balcony.
  • Avoid close contact with other people, including household members, and especially seniors and those with chronic conditions, or a compromised immune system.
  • Watch for symptoms like fever, cough, sore throat, runny nose or difficulty breathing in yourself or family members.
  • Should any symptoms occur, complete a simple online self-assessment to determine next steps.

For more information, consult these self-isolation guidelines.
