The Alberta Government announced the province will enter Stage 3 of the Open for Summer Plan on July 1 which includes easing many public health restrictions. In alignment with the province, City Council voted to deactivate the Temporary Mandatory Face Coverings bylaw. Edmontonians will not be required to wear a face covering or mask in indoor public places as of July 1.
As part of the reopening plan, it will still be mandatory for masks to be worn by Albertans when in public vehicles like buses, LRT, taxis and ride shares. As some people may be concerned about their safety, voluntary mask wearing is a reasonable step that we should all respect.
