YMM Airport still requiring masks as province lifts most public health restrictions

Almost all public health restrictions have been lifted, as the province moves to step two of reopening.

The Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo confirmed they have also lifted public health restrictions alongside the province.

As of Mar. 1, 2022:

  • Provincial mandatory mask mandate has ended (except in AHS facilities, continuing care, and on public transit)
  • Remaining provincial school requirements (including cohorting) are removed.
  • Screening prior to youth activities is no longer required.
  • Capacity limits are lifted for all venues.
  • Limits on social gatherings are removed.
  • Restrictions on interactive activities, liquor service, and operating hours are lifted.
  • Mandatory work-from-home requirement is removed.

Mandatory isolation is still required for those who test positive or have core symptoms from COVID-19.

The province is on a ‘to be determined’ timeline when it comes to step three of reopening the province, which is based on hospitalization rates trending downwards.

Step three includes reducing COVID-19 measures in continuing care centres, AHS facilities, public transit, and mandatory isolation becoming a recommendation.
