In light of the Government of Alberta’s recent announcement to increase restrictions, we will begin a thoughtful approach to determine how this will affect services offered by the City.

As of midnight tonight, all individual reservations and one on one personal trainer bookings at recreation centres are cancelled. 

We want to ensure that Edmontonians, along with those who work at the City, are as safe as possible. We continue to ask Edmontonians to refer to edmonton.ca/COVID19 for the most up to date information. 

Additional information about the City’s pandemic response will be provided at an Emergency Advisory Committee meeting on April 7.

Recreation Facilities

Due to new COVID-19 restrictions announced by the Government of Alberta, all recreation centres are closed.

Arenas, St. Francis Xavier Sports Centre and Kinsmen Sport Centre remain open only for the group rentals including schools, youth and performance rentals as is allowed under Step 1. Personal training is also still available.

Virtual programs are available, including: fitness, personal training, nutrition services, safety and aquatic certification programs, and art programs. To register for virtual programs, visit MoveLearnPlay.

Province of Alberta Restrictions

The province has put in place mandatory public health measures across Alberta to protect the health system and slow the spread of COVID-19.

The province has mandated that all Alberta employees must work from home unless physical presence is necessary.

Restrictions continue to evolve constantly. For the most up-to-date information on the mandatory provincial restrictions, please visit alberta.ca/COVID19.

Enforcement Activation

The City supports the restrictions announced by the province by activating our enforcement teams.

Through close coordination with Edmonton Police Service (EPS) and Alberta Health Services (AHS), teams of Peace Officers work seven days a week to support Face Covering bylaw enforcement and Public Health Order monitoring. While enforcement has occurred throughout the pandemic, the City concentrates our efforts on public spaces, gatherings and worship centres.

Shared Streets and Mobility Lanes

Shared Streets and Mobility Lanes will be opening again this spring, for people who walk, bike and drive, regardless of how they choose to move around our city!

The health and safety of Edmontonians is our top priority. Shared Streets and Mobility Lanes are one way we will help everyone stay safe and comply with Alberta Health Services physical distancing guidelines. This work was initiated in 2020, as we adapted to how the COVID pandemic impacted our lives.

Shared Streets are open for people to use to bike, walk, or other active modes. Vehicle access is restricted to local traffic only on these streets. Since all modes are using the same space, the speed limit is reduced to 20 km/hr. 

Mobility Lanes open the use of a vehicle lane for people to use for physical activity by closing the lane to vehicle traffic and reducing speed limits to 40 km/hr.

The list of locations were selected based on population density, pedestrian activity, type and design of the road, safety as well as feedback and data from the 2020 implementation. Additional locations may be added by the City. 

Installation will begin on April 16 and will continue throughout April and early May as street sweeping is completed along those streets.
