Jason Kenney Declares Public Health Emergency In Alberta, Shortly After Emergency Declaration In Ontario

All events over 50 are cancelled.

The Alberta government has declared a Public Health Emergency.

Here’s what the announcement means, as posted on the Alberta government website:

“Alberta declared a state of emergency under the Public Health Act.

New public health measures are now recommended to limit the time Albertans spend in large crowds and crowed spaces. Effective immediately:

  • all events over 50 people to be cancelled

  • no attendance at rec centres, casinos, bingo halls, bars, theatres and other facilities

  • sit-down restaurants can remain open at lower capacity”

The move matches a similar declaration in Ontario by Premier Doug Ford.
