Current Regulations

Local: 

  • Mandatory Mask Bylaw: On July 6, 2021, City Council repealed the temporary mask bylaw, which means that masks are no longer required in Chestermere.

    However, the rise of variant cases, particularly the Delta Variant, have prompted health officials to continue recommending voluntary mask usage in both crowded indoor and outdoor spaces.

    Please note that according to the Provincial Government, masks will still be required for transit, taxis, hospitals, and continuing care settings in Alberta.

    Thank you for doing your part over the past 16 months!
