Alberta Is Reopening Restaurants & Gyms But There Are A Lot Of New Rules

It will kick off on February 8.

On Friday, January 29, Jason Kenney provided an Alberta COVID-19 update that will amend some of the current health restrictions in the province. 

Under the updated health orders, gyms will be permitted to reopen and restaurants can welcome Albertans back for dine-in services

We are comfortable to proceed with this step as of Monday, February 8. Jason Kenney

Jason Kenney said that we will be reopening in stages that will be dictated by hospital benchmarks. 

We are currently in the early stages in which outdoor gatherings in groups up to 10 were re-introduced.

Next, we will move into Step One on Monday, February 8 which will allow the easing of restrictions for indoor and outdoor children's sports and performances in relation to schools. 

It also includes indoor adult fitness and dine-in services at restaurants, cafes and pubs. 

This step is possible because we have dipped below the hospitalization benchmark which was set to 600. 

There will be new rules that include physical distancing, limited activities, group size limitations and more. 

Indoor fitness restrictions will be eased in some capacity, although it is unclear yet if that will be exclusively for one-on-one training or gyms as a whole.
