Current Restrictions - Updated May 27th

Alberta's Open For Summer Plan

This 3-stage roadmap outlines how restrictions will ease while protecting the healthcare system and increasing vaccination rates in the province. COVID-19 transmission will continue to be monitored. If required, a stage may be paused to respond to trends at regional or provincial levels. The sustained reopening will require Albertans to get fully vaccinated with 2 doses during the summer to prevent future spread. These restriction changes apply provincewide. Additional details will be released before each stage.
