The City of Edmonton will require face coverings to be worn indoors at all City-owned and operated buildings, facilities, amenities and attractions effective August 1.
“Our first priority throughout the pandemic has been maintaining everyone’s safety and well-being. Taking this step will help protect the safety of everyone accessing City services, enjoying our facilities or riding on Edmonton Transit,” said Interim City Manager Adam Laughlin.
Face coverings will be required in all publicly accessible spaces in City-owned and operated facilities, attractions and amenities, and while riding on Edmonton Transit. The new measure is being introduced after a careful consideration of public health recommendations and Edmontonians’ views on COVID-19 and face coverings.
