Everything You Need To Know About Alberta’s Reopening Plan

We have officially moved into Alberta’s reopening plan and here’s what you need to know about it.

After weeks of lockdown, Alberta is implementing a reopening plan throughout the summer.

On June 1st, it had been 2 weeks since 50% of Albertans 12+ received at least one dose.  And hospitalizations have been below 800 and declining.  For these two reasons, Alberta moved into Stage 1 of our Open for Summer Plan.

Here are all the new Covid-19 regulations in the Stage 1 phase:

  • Places of worship are still open and increase their capacity limit to 15% of their fire code occupancy.
  • Outdoor social gatherings: up to 10 people.
  • Indoor social gatherings are still prohibited.
  • Outdoor activities (physical, performance and recreation): up to 10 distanced people of all ages.
  • Personal and wellness services will reopen by appointment only.
  • Funeral services: up to 20 people can attend a funeral – excluding facility staff, funeral clergy or organizers not considered guests.  Receptions are still prohibited.
  • Wedding ceremonies: up to 10 people can attend a wedding – including the officiant, the bride/groom and witnesses.  Receptions are still prohibited.
  • Restaurants: outdoor patio dining is open for up to 4 household members per table, or 3 people if diners who live alone are with their 2 close contacts.
  • Retail can increase to 15% of their fire code occupancy and must maintain the ability to distance.
  • Distancing and masking requirements remain in effect.

Premier Jason Kenney expects Stage 2 of Alberta’s reopening plan to take effect on June 10th.  We will enter this stage two weeks after 60% of Albertans 12+ have received at least one dose, and hospitalizations are below 500 and declining.

The government of Alberta expects Stage 3 of the reopening plan, which will be a complete reopening and lifting of all restrictions, to take effect in late June or early July.
