Strathcona County cleaning protocols

Provincial COVID-19 Measures

Effective March 1, the Government of Alberta lifted nearly all of the remaining COVID-19 restrictions. Strathcona County Council voted to amend the masking bylaw so it lapsed when the Province lifted masking requirements. 

Masking is still mandatory under provincial mandate for everyone 13+ on public transit, in transit terminals, and in high-risk settings including hospitals, continuing care and AHS facilities.

If you have core COVID-19 symptoms, you may be required to isolate. If you have symptoms and test negative, please stay home until your symptoms resolve. Please follow all follow provincial measures.

Proof of vaccination, medical exemption or negative COVID-19 result is no longer required.

Please remain respectful if others choose to continue wearing masks. We encourage you to keep 2m from non-household members.

The safety of staff and the public is a County priority. Strathcona County meets and 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.
