Strathcona County cleaning protocols

State of Public Health Emergency

The County has adopted the Restrictions Exemption Program. Proof of vaccination, negative privately-paid COVID test result or medical exemption is required for non-essential County services, along with ID (18+). Proof is not required for essential services including voting, paying bills, counselling and navigation services, and riding Transit.

Youth ages 12-17 do not need to show vaccination proof, negative COVID test or exemption if they are participating only in sport, fitness or performance activities. If they are spectating, they will need proof. Test distributed by schools are provided by AHS and are not accepted for facility entrance.

Check the frequent questions for what types of vaccination proof we accept.

Under the provincial State of Public Health Emergency, provincial measures mandate physical distancing (where possible) and mandatory masking in all indoor spaces, workplaces and public vehicles province-wide.

Outdoor, private social gatherings are limited to 20 people with a minimum of two metres physical distancing between households.

The safety of staff and the public is a County priority as we re-open programs and services. Strathcona County meets, and in many cases exceeds, Alberta Health Service’s cleaning and disinfection protocols for COVID-19.

Stopping the spread of COVID-19 requires a partnered approach between the County and our guests. We each have a responsibility to mind proper hygiene and staying home when feeling ill or as directed by AHS to self-isolate.

Strathcona County's Rapid Response Plan will be enacted when the municipality becomes aware of a positive COVID-19 case. Specific responses will be actioned on a case-by-case basis, in alignment with Alberta Health Services' direction. 

Consider downloading the ABTraceTogether mobile app to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. This is a mobile contact tracing app that helps to let you know if you've been exposed to COVID-19 – or if you've exposed others – while protecting your privacy.
