Sturgeon County - COVID 19

Sturgeon County Response to COVID-19

As we navigate the dynamic and changing landscape related to the global COVID19 pandemic, Sturgeon County is committed to the delivery of essential services while ensuring the health and safety of our residents and staff.

This page will be updated regularly to reflect changes in our operations as well as local restrictions and guidelines based on our classification as determined by the Province of Alberta.

Health measures are in place to help protect the health system and slow the spread of COVID-19. The provincial restrictions apply to all individuals and businesses within Sturgeon County.

Mandatory Masks

The Province of Alberta’s mandatory mask requirement remains in effect

The provincial requirement means that masks are mandatory in all indoor workplaces, except when working alone in an office or a safely distanced cubicle or an appropriate barrier is in place. This applies to all employees, visitors, delivery personnel, and contractors and includes all locations where employees are present and masks won’t pose a safety risk.  

Visit the Government of Alberta website for more information on mandatory mask requirements and mask exemptions.
