COVID-19 Public Health Restrictions

Alberta has declared a state of public health emergency. COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations continue to rise, largely in unvaccinated Albertans. New measures to protect the health care system, stop the spread, and increase vaccination rates came into effect starting September 16.


  • Masks must be worn inside all public places across Alberta
  • To enjoy sit-down dining, fitness activities and most other indoor activities, you will need to show proof of vaccination or a negative rapid COVID-19 test 
  • A maximum of 10 vaccinated adults (from two households) may attend private indoor social gatherings; unvaccinated people may not attend private indoor gatherings
  • Children under 12 are exempted from gathering limits and vaccination requirements, but MUST wear a mask indoors if 2 or older



Partners for Safety 2021

The Partners for Safety will help keep Calgary’s little ghouls and goblins safe this Halloween

Halloween should be spooky – not scary! The Calgary Partners for Safety have been patrolling the streets on Halloween night for over 25 years to keep young Calgarians safe while they trick-or-treat, and this year is no exception. From 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. on Sunday, October 31, hundreds of vehicles will be on Calgary’s streets providing high-visibility assistance to families who decide to trick-or-treat this year.

The Partners for Safety program’s goals are to provide Halloween safety information to parents and children; and to patrol communities and provide a visible presence on Halloween night.

Coordinated by Calgary’s Child Magazine, the Partners for Safety include the Calgary Police Service, Emergency Medical Services, Calgary Fire Department, Calgary Transit, Calgary Community Standards (Bylaw and 9-1-1), Calgary Emergency Management Agency, and Global Calgary. Any child experiencing a problem on Halloween can go to any one of these partners for help.
