What the new health order means for restaurant patrons in Alberta

Nov 25 2020, 12:29 am

On Tuesday afternoon, Premier Jason Kenney provided an update on COVID-19 in Alberta and the province’s pandemic response, and that meant more targeted measures.

In addition to a series of new health orders, Kenney announced that effective Friday, November 27, in select regions under enhanced status, patrons heading out to dine at a restaurant are only permitted to do so with their immediate household.

If you live alone, you may dine out with “two non-household social contacts,” and only those two contacts, while the order remains in place.

This new measure for bars and restaurants is similar to what has been in place in BC for several weeks.

Health officials also extended the existing orders for bars and restaurants to stop liquor service at 10 pm and to close at 11 pm.

In addition to urging Albertans to use takeout, delivery, and curbside pickup whenever possible, health officials announced that enhanced inspections will be happening at food and beverage establishments to ensure COVID-19 safety measures are in place.

These measures will remain in place for three weeks but will be extended if needed.
