Outside gatherings are limited to a maximum of 50 people in Alberta.

Physical distance of two metres must remain between people from different households, and attendees must follow proper hygiene practices. Attendees should not share food or drinks.

Indoor gatherings are still limited to fewer than 15 people, except when otherwise identified in public health orders such as workplaces, places of worship, and in restaurants.

Albertans are asked to follow public health guidelines and take extra steps to keep members of their household safe when heading to provincial parks, cottages, and onto public land this weekend. This includes:

Respecting the health and safety of small communities along the way by planning their trip without stops for gas or food, where possible.

Continuing to practise physical distancing and proper handwashing.

Respecting municipal restrictions for playgrounds. If playgrounds can be accessed, encourage children to play with children in the same household or their cohort family, sanitize hands before or after playing on a play structure, and remember to wash everyone’s hands thoroughly as soon as possible.
