Wearing Masks In Alberta: Here's When You'll Still Have To Wear One After July 1

On Tuesday, June 22, Dr. Deena Hinshaw gave an Alberta COVID-19 update. During the announcement, she outlined the new mandates for wearing masks in Alberta that will be in place once Stage 3 of reopening kicks off on July 1.

"While the general indoor provincial mask mandate will be lifted, masking will still be required in limited and specific settings." These settings include continuing care and acute care settings.

Furthermore, Albertans will still be required to wear masks when travelling by "public transit, taxis, and ride spring given the closed, indoor environments of these spaces and to protect those who have not been vaccinated yet," said Hinshaw.

She added that the province will "continue to monitor these settings and will lift masking requirements when it is safe to do so."

During her update, she noted that there had only been 57 new cases of COVID-19 reported in Alberta over the past 24-hours.
