Safety protocols

To limit the spread of COVID-19, please adhere to the following safety protocols when visiting any City facility:

  • Stay home if you are feeling unwell.
  • Maintain at least two metres physical distance (follow floor markings where provided).
  • Gatherings must not exceed Alberta Health Services guidelines.
  • High touch surfaces could be a source of transmission for COVID-19. For your safety, please sanitize your hands before and after your visit.
 

Closures

The following facilities remain closed in an effort to limit the spread of Coronavirus and to comply with the Alberta Chief Medical Officer of Health recommendations.

 

Chinook Winds Spray Park opening date unknown

We know that everyone wants to get out and enjoy City facilities, especially during warmer weather. Although Chinook Winds Spray Parks could open based on the Province’s recently amended, phase-two relaunch plan, we do not have an opening date for the spray park at this time.

To open the spray park, we need to get an Alberta Health Authority inspection and hire enough Park staff prior to re-opening. The Parks department currently has about 50 summer staff (including staff redeployed from other City departments). This is about half the staff normally employed for the summer parks maintenance program and some of those redeployed staff will be going back to their original jobs when Genesis Place re-opens. In addition to this, we are currently doing maintenance on the Chinook Winds Spray Park that was delayed because of COVID-19 related supply issues.

Starting July 1, Airdrie Transit will resume fare collection.

On July 6, Airdrie Transit will resume some of its regular service (Routes 900, 901, 902).
