Keep our community safe
Do not travel if you have COVID-19 symptoms or have been told to isolate. We are looking forward to seeing you, but please wait a little longer.
Respect others. A mandatory mask bylaw as well as physical distancing is in place for all public indoor spaces in Alberta.
Regularly wash your hands or use hand sanitizer.
Consider getting vaccinated. This will help you and us to travel and be safer.
