COVID-19

The City of Fort Saskatchewan is monitoring the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) situation in Alberta. The City is taking the following steps and continues to revise services in these unprecedented circumstances.

Open for Summer Plan - Stage 3

Alberta entered Stage 3 on July 1. All public health measures have now been lifted except for isolation/quarantine requirements and masking requirements in health care settings and public transit.

Rules for fully vaccinated people

As more Albertans are being vaccinated against COVID-19, Alberta Health issued the following guidance about vaccines in relation to existing public health measures:

  • Until most Albertans are protected, fully vaccinated people must continue following all public health measures: no indoor social gatherings, keep 2 metres apart from others, wear a mask in public, wash your hands, and stay home when sick.
  • Once both doses take effect, you are less likely to become severely sick with COVID-19. But we don’t yet know if the vaccine prevents vaccinated people from spreading the virus.
  • We must continue reviewing emerging evidence on asymptomatic and variant transmission before we can safely alter public health guidelines.
  • We will let Albertans know when rules for fully vaccinated people can be changed.

For future updates, refer to the Alberta Health website.
