Page updated as of October 26

The number of COVID-19 cases in Edmonton continues to increase. Effective October 26, there is a mandatory 15-person limit on all social gatherings in Edmonton.

  • Around 40% of exposures in the two cities are likely the result of social and household transmission.
  • This applies to all social or family gatherings, including parties, wedding and funeral receptions and banquets.
  • This limit does not change the measures currently in place for restaurants, worship services, wedding ceremonies, conferences, funeral services or trade shows.
  • The limit is temporary. It will be reassessed after one month.

Alberta Health Services will increase inspections of public-serving businesses in Edmonton to ensure that existing guidance is being followed and customers are protected.

City Stops Distribution of Face Covering Exemption Cards

After assessing the face covering exemption card program following suspending card distribution, the City has decided it will not issue any additional cards.

Exemption cards that were issued through to August 12, 2020 remain valid; however businesses may still choose to ask all patrons to wear a mask or face covering. In those instances, patrons who have a legitimate exemption under the Temporary Mandatory Face Coverings bylaw should inquire with a business about alternative service methods. Options to suggest include curbside pick up, after hours service, home delivery, sending a friend or family member, and so on.

Should anyone with a legitimate exemption still have challenges securing service from a business, they can call 311, and the City may be able to offer assistance.

Turf Maintenance Service Levels

Premier sports fields and parks continue to receive a minimum of weekly mowing. All other turf inventory, such as regular sports fields, boulevards, shared-use path areas, and pocket parks, will receive maintenance on a 14-day mowing cycle, at minimum. Sports fields will not have lines painted by the City this season.

All turf, including parks, sports fields, pocket parks and boulevards, will receive one cycle of trimming (weed whacking) around trees and objects per year, and a continuation in weed control.

Day Camps

2020 Summer Day Camps

After careful consideration, the City of Edmonton has decided to cancel summer day camp offerings for the 2020 season. Many variables went into this decision including how current fiscal restraints affect our ability to offer the kind of enriching and safe experience Edmontonians have come to expect and a reasonable price.      

Anyone who had previously registered for a camp will be notified of this cancellation along with instructions about how to receive credit or a refund.

Green Shack Programming

Green Shack programming will not be activated for the duration of the summer season. This decision was made as part of the City’s strategy to reduce expedictures in response to the COVID-19 crisis and will not be affected by Provincial economic relaunch plans.

Presently, there are no changes to the City's residential garbage and recycling pickup services or schedules. Garbage and recycling continue to be picked up in the same way. 

Please do your part to keep collectors safe:

  • Make sure all recycling and garbage is securely bagged.
  • Please do not approach your collector to show your appreciation. The best way to thank your collector is to package your waste properly, leave a note or wave from an appropriate distance.
Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)

Used personal protective equipment (PPE), which includes face masks and gloves, cannot be recycled.

Reduced Rates

Reduced waste utility rates will be in effect from June 1 to December 31, 2020. The new monthly rates are:

  • $46.52 for curbside/alley collection

Please continue to practice physical distancing when you use off-leash areas and clean your hands after touching gates or latches, as these surfaces are not sanitized.

Peace officers will be monitoring the off-leash areas to ensure people continue to follow physical distancing and maximum occupancy rules.

Animal Care and Control Centre

Stay Safe and Healthy on Transit

We are in this together - we can keep each other safe and healthy by following a few simple steps. Wear a mask or face covering, physically distance yourself from others, consider travelling during off-peak times and continue to follow AHS guidelines. Bus shields and LRT cabs provide excellent protection so Operators do not need to wear masks when in a shielded area. However, Operators and other public facing transit employees will wear masks when going into public areas.

Cleaning and Disinfecting

Updated July 7, 2020

We are continuing our daily enhanced cleaning and disinfecting on buses, LRT, DATS vehicles, transit centres, LRT stations as well as high touch areas.

Shared Streets and Lane Closures - Fall 2020 Removals

Temporary adjustments to our streets were implemented earlier this year to support people getting outside, spacing out and moving safely.

  • Tuesday, September 29 - lane closures will begin to be removed
  • Tuesday, October 27 - all Shared Streets will begin to be removed

Removing these adjustments supports increased vehicle traffic with back to school and return to work, and considers increased costs and maintenance requirements due to upcoming winter conditions.

A number of lessons were learned through the Shared Streets and lane closures implemented in 2020, including confirming (through a partnership study with the University of Alberta) how they positively impacted individuals' abilities to physically distance. These experiences have provided many considerations that will be explored further when looking at opportunities for 2021.

The City of Edmonton continues to encourage people to get outside, space out, move safely and make use of the sidewalks and many pathways:

  • We have an extensive network of shared pathways and trails, and bike routes in Edmonton, see a map at edmonton.ca/discover
  • Recreation centres are currently offering outdoor fitness classes
  • If you cannot keep a physical distance, please wear a mask to help keep everyone safe
Shared Streets Removal - All Shared Streets will be removed

Until October 27, Shared Streets are open for people who walk, bike and drive, regardless of how they choose to move around our city.

Vehicle access is restricted to local traffic only along Shared Streets, and since all modes are using the same space, the speed limit is reduced to 20 km/hr.

Streets in densely populated neighbourhoods are the priority, so all Edmontonians have an opportunity to space out.

U of A Shared-use Roads Study

A University of Alberta study was completed utilizing a computer monitoring system to analyze video footage to measure the effectiveness and safety of some of the expanded walking and cycling paths. It found that the widening of the shared-use portion of the streets led to a 52.4% reduction in physical distancing violations for Saskatchewan Drive and a 24.5% reduction for Victoria Promenade.

You can read the full article in the University of Alberta’s Folio newsletter.

Events & Communities

To help support Edmontonians’ access to fresh food and ease the worry of food security for many, the City of Edmonton expanded the number of community gardens this year through the creation of a temporary Pop-up Community Garden pilot on City-owned land.

These Pop-Up Gardens consist of raised beds designed for community food production, and provide a safe recreational opportunity.

If your garden is receiving watering services from the City, the last day for services is September 11. Please harvest everything in your pop-up gardens by September 27. Removal of planters will begin on September 28, weather permitting.
