COVID-19 Public Health Restrictions

Public health measures will be lifted in 3 stages as the Omicron wave subsides and pressure on the healthcare system eases. Albertans can help make that possible by getting every vaccine dose they are eligible for. Alberta entered Step 2 on March 1; next steps will depend on hospitalization rates continuing to trend downward.
