Edmonton Mask Bylaw Reactivation

 

“Medical experts have made it clear that we are in the fourth wave of COVID-19 and I applaud City Council for making this decision to help keep Edmontonians safe. I urge Edmontonians to be respectful of one another and remember that as of Friday (September 3,2021), it will be required to wear masks in all public indoor spaces.” – Mayor Don Iveson

Effective September 3:

  • The City of Edmonton has reactivated its Temporary Mandatory Face Covering Bylaw requiring masks in all indoor public spaces and on public vehicles, such as the LRT, buses, and vehicles for hire. This applies to the publicly accessible areas of businesses, retail shops and includes City recreation facilities and attractions, transit centres and LRT platforms.

Some City services are still operating at reduced or adjusted levels. Please refer back to this page for updates. 

  • This bylaw will be in place until December 31, or until active cases drop below 100 per 100,000 for 10 straight days.
  • Wearing masks or face coverings is a community effort for those who can. However, we understand not everyone is able to wear a mask or face covering and some exemptions apply. Learn more about what the exemptions are at edmonton.ca/masks.
  • Where possible, consider giving yourself and each other 2 metres of distance. Please use hand sanitizers provided and cover your coughs/sneezes.
  • Please stay at home if you are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 and follow all Government of Alberta requirements for isolation if you are experiencing symptoms.

 

On behalf of SMCC we would like to advise all those entering  Masjid Annoor and Annoor Islamic Centre to please place their face mask or face covering on properly, covering the mouth and nose, prior to entering either Masjid.

Thank you for your cooperation.
