As of July 1, Albertans are now free to gather indoors and outdoors; places of worship and businesses can operate at full capacity; the provincial mask mandate is repealed; and, people can safely get back to doing all of the activities they enjoy.
Limited measures remain in effect to protect continuing care and acute care settings, and to offer additional safeguards until all Albertans have had the opportunity to receive their second dose of vaccine.
- Masking will continue to be required in limited and specific settings:
- Public transit, taxis and ride sharing.
- Continuing care and acute care settings.
- Albertans may wish to consider individual risk factors and choose to wear masks in other public indoor settings.
- Confirmed cases of COVID-19 are still required to isolate for 10 days.
- Close contacts of confirmed cases are still required to quarantine. Quarantine length continues to be based on vaccination status.
- Protective measures in continuing care settings remain in effect.
Health officials have created a general guidance document (General guidance for COVID-19 and other respiratory illnesses) for all sectors to help Albertans safely transition into Stage 3.
