Face masks on transit and in transit spaces are required under the City’s Temporary Transit Facilities Face Mask Bylaw. This bylaw aligns with the mandatory mask requirements put in place by the Government of Alberta to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Wearing masks or face coverings is a community effort for those who can. Across the province, masks or face coverings are mandatory in settings such as public transit, AHS-operated and contracted facilities, and all continuing care settings.

The City of Edmonton’s goal is to protect Edmontonians from COVID-19. Wearing a mask will help do that. If in doubt, wear a mask or face covering.

Please give yourself and each other 2 metres of distance where possible, use hand sanitizers when provided and cover your coughs and sneezes.

Please stay at home if you are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 and follow current Government of Alberta requirements for isolation if you are experiencing symptoms.

Mask Exemptions

We understand that not everyone on transit is able to wear a mask or face covering, so we ask everyone to be kind to those unable to do so.

The Government of Alberta states that mask use is not required if:

  • the individual is under 2 years of age
  • the individual qualifies for a medical exception
  • the individual does not meet the current mandatory requirements
