Here's What You'll Be Allowed To Do When Alberta 'Opens For Good' ...

The latest Alberta reopening announcement was music to Albertan ears — the province is almost completely opening up on Canada Day.

Premier Jason Kenney announced on Friday, June 18, that the province would be moving to Stage 3 on Thursday, July 1 — not just open for summer, Kenney said, but "open for good."

In reality, it's not entirely back to normal, but there are some significant changes to Alberta's restrictionson the horizon.

For starters, the general indoor mask restriction will be lifted, meaning businesses will no longer be required to tell their customers to wear masks. However, Alberta says some mask-wearing may be required in "limited and specific settings."

People with COVID-19 still need to adhere to Alberta's isolation rules, as well, and some rules remain in certain health care settings.

But other than that, all other COVID-19 restrictions will be lifted, meaning no more limits on indoor/outdoor gatherings, sports or fitness, or crowd sizes at festivals or events.

Restaurants and retailers can open to full capacity, and more people can return to in-person worship and office work. There also will no longer be advisories against non-essential travel, as long as Albertans follow restrictions in other jurisdictions.

Alberta says more info on Stage 3 will be coming in the future, but in the meantime, the countdown to lifted restrictions starts now.
