As part of the 3-step easing measures, the provincial mask mandate has been lifted since March 1, 2022.

Masks are still required in high-risk settings, including:

  • on municipal and intra-provincial public transit for Albertans 13+
  • at all AHS operated and contracted facilities
  • at all continuing care settings
