Calgary Mask Bylaw Repealed

Lisa C. Community, COVID-19, Settlement & Community News, Updates

Amazing news came on July 5 when Calgary City Council revisited the COVID-19 outlook:

The City Council voted to repeal the Temporary COVID-19 Face Coverings Bylaw (BYLAW NUMBER 26M2020).

As a result, Calgarians will no longer be required to wear face coverings as part of a bylaw or provincial mandate, other than in some specific situations required by the Government of Alberta. For the protection of our patrons and staff, face coverings will continue to be required in City-owned and operated facilities and vehicles.

So, to summarize, as of July 6, 2021, Calgarians are only required to wear face coverings in the following situations:
  • working in or visiting any continuing care facility
  • working in or visiting any facility operated by AHS, Covenant or their contracted service providers
  • using public transit, including ride share vehicles, taxis, motor coaches and shuttles
  • inside City-owned and operated facilities and vehicles.

Word of the Day:

Repeal: to cancel, to revoke, to rescind
