Blackfalds not implementing Alberta’s vaccine program

The Town of Blackfalds has chosen not to move forward with the Restriction Exemption Program.

Instead, as of Monday, town facilities will move to one-third fire code occupancy, in addition to social distancing and mandatory face coverings requirements, for town facilities including the Abbey Centre, Civic Centre, FCSS Office and the Eagle Builders Centre.

User groups who will be renting facilities as separate entities will be able to implement the REP for their own events or keep with the one-third capacity at their own discretion.

FCSS Youth programming will run as scheduled and face coverings are required for all registrants.

Town adult fitness classes and programs will be postponed for the next week until more clarification comes from Alberta Health Services. Registrants will be contacted for rescheduling.
