Today’s the day, Alberta. Restaurants across the province are now officially permitted to open their patios once again after over three weeks of restrictions on dine-in services.
Since May 9, 2021, all in-person dining, including outdoor patios, had to close for at least a three-week period.
During a press conference last week, the Government of Alberta outlined the province’s plan for reopening.
Premier Jason Kenney announced a 3-stage roadmap outlining how restrictions will ease while protecting the healthcare system.
