COVID-19 Measures and Precautions

– Promoting Community Health & Safety-

We are grateful Alberta health authorities have indicated we can remain open for business. We do however need to make a few changes to be able to continue to serve you.

Starting Sept 20th, businesses or event organizers may implement a proof of vaccination program to be exempt from restrictions. Silver Willow is choosing to  implement restrictions, because we will NOT be checking clients’ personal medical information.

In addition, the AHS site says “Events and facilities that are fully outdoors (excluding washrooms), have no capacity restrictions but must maintain 2 metres distancing between households or 2 close contacts for those living alone.”

See the Alberta Government’s COVID news page here or the restrictions for outdoor recreation here.
