New restrictions are in effect as of December 13, 2020 for businesses and services in order to help slow the spread of COVID-19. These restrictions include temporary closures and limited capacity for in person services. To find out how these restrictions affect you, please review the details on the Government of Alberta website.

The Old Strathcona Business Association’s Economic Recovery Task Force identified that many of our businesses were leading the charge on best practices for COVID-19 safety. We have created this COVID-19 Business Safety Guidelines kit to share and reference some tips to help our neighbours refine current business operations and build upon existing COVID-19 policies!
