The number of COVID-19 cases in Edmonton continues to increase. Effective October 26, there is a mandatory 15-person limit on all social gatherings in Edmonton.
- Around 40% of exposures in the two cities are likely the result of social and household transmission.
- This applies to all social or family gatherings, including parties, wedding and funeral receptions and banquets.
- This limit does not change the measures currently in place for restaurants, worship services, wedding ceremonies, conferences, funeral services or trade shows.
- The limit is temporary. It will be reassessed after one month.
Alberta Health Services will increase inspections of public-serving businesses in Edmonton to ensure that existing guidance is being followed and customers are protected.
