Alberta's Relaunch Strategy Puts Safety First

Alberta’s relaunch strategy puts safety first while gradually reopening businesses, resuming activities and getting people back to work. By working together, we can ensure our sacrifices to slow the spread of COVID-19 are not wasted.

A safely staged COVID-19 recovery plan to relaunch Alberta’s economy
To be successful, we must stay vigilant to slow the spread: follow public health measures, practice physical distancing and good hygiene, and continue acting responsibly. The plan to move forward requires careful monitoring and respecting all guidelines outlined by the Chief Medical Officer. Each stage of relaunch will depend on our ability to keep infection numbers low.

Lac Ste. Anne County’s Relaunch Plan is based on the following:

  • Federal and Provincial Public Health Orders,
  • “Workplace Guidance for Business Owners” provincial document,
  • “Opening Soon – Alberta’s Relaunch Strategy” provincial document, and
  • Alberta Occupational Health & Safety Act, Regulation and Code.
