COVID IS CLIMBING IN ALBERTA . WE HAVE HAD OVER 37,000 CASES AT THIS POINT SO WE HAVE NEW RULES :
Due to the rising number of COVID-19 cases across Edmonton, the surrounding region, and across Alberta, the province has announced new targeted measures to protect the health system and limit the spread of COVID-19.
Effective November 13, restrictions include:
- A two-week ban on group fitness classes, team sport activities and group performance activities in Edmonton and surrounding areas.
- Restaurants, bars, lounges and pubs will be required to stop liquor sales by 10pm and close by 11pm. This will be in place for the next two weeks.
- City of Edmonton enforcement officers will help enforce the new restrictions at clubs and bars alongside the Public Safety Compliance Team (PSCT).
- Funeral and wedding ceremonies are limited to 50 attendees, and worship services are limited to one-third of regular capacity per service. These restrictions will be in place until the stress on the health system is reduced.
I HAD THE LOVELY OPPORTUNITY OF HAVING BRUNCH WITH MY SISTER, PAULA, AT ONE OF OUR FAVOURITE RESTAURANTS (HAP’S) WHICH IS FOLLOWING ALL PROTOCOLS AND SPARSELY ATTENDED ON A FRIDAY MORNING.
I DID END UP CANCELLING AN IN PERSON VISIT WITH A FRIEND THAT AFTERNOON BECAUSE WE HAVE BEEN ASKED TO KEEP ONLY TO OUR ‘BUBBLE’ . WE HAD A ‘FACE TIME’ VISIT INSTEAD WHICH WAS VERY NICE.
I WILL TRY AND THINK OF THIS LIST WHEN I GET SAD ABOUT OUR NEW NORMAL. HOW ABOUT YOU?
