Canmore Kananaskis COVID-19 Update

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.


Restrictions Exemption Program

Starting Sept. 20, vaccine-eligible individuals will be required to provide government-issued proof of immunization or a negative privately paid COVID-19 test within the previous 72 hours to access a variety of participating social, recreational and discretionary events and businesses throughout the province.

To enter spaces that are participating in the program, including restaurants, bars and indoor organized events, people aged 12 and older will be required to show their proof of vaccination, a negative recent test result or a medical exemption letter from an authorized health professional.
