Alberta Opens stage 3 on July 1

“That means that, on July 1 — on Canada Day — Alberta’s public health measures will be lifted and our lives will get back to normal,”


Under Stage 3, nearly all restrictions are lifted, including a ban on social gatherings.

Isolation requirements for positive COVID-19 cases and some protective measures in continuing care facilities would remain in place.

“Here’s the bottom line: on Canada Day, virtually all remaining COVID-19 restrictions will be history,” Kenney said. “No more limits on weddings or funerals. No more bans on indoor social gatherings. No more limits for gyms, sports and fitness activities, No more capacity limits at restaurants or retail or for places of worship. No more advisories against non-essential travel, so long as you observe travel requirements in other jurisdictions.”

"That means on July 1, Canada Day, Alberta's public health measures will be lifted and our lives will get back to normal."

Kenney also urged Albertans to continue to use common sense once the province has moved into Stage 3. If your sick, stay home, get tested if you have symptoms, and if you test positive for COVID, you will still be legally required to isolate.

and don't throw away your masks yet, Alberta's Minister of Health Tyler Shandro said masking may still be involved.  

More details on Stage 3 are expected to come next week
