Face coverings (non-medical masks)

Non-medical mask

As part of Strathcona County's efforts to stop the spread of COVID-19, non-medical masks (face coverings) are required for people entering all County-owned buildings and transit, effective August 4. 

Alberta Health Services is advising that wearing face coverings (non-medical masks) in indoor public areas will help prevent the spread along with practicing good hygiene, maintaining physical distancing, getting tested and monitoring for symptoms. 

At a special Council meeting on August 6, 2020, Strathcona County Council  approved the  Temporary Mandatory Face Covering Bylaw 46-2020 (155.7 KB)  that mandates face coverings in indoor public places and public vehicles - when Alberta Health Services reports 25 or more active COVID-19 cases in the municipality.

Strathcona County invited the public to share their views on wearing face coverings in our community. View the survey results (360.9 KB) .
