Alberta's New Covid Regulations

Any word on whether the new covid restrictions announced today affect number of fans allowed in Calgary and Edmonton stadiums.?

I believe a vaccine passport or negative test within 48 hrs will be needed to attend Stadiums

There doesn't appear to be but I find the following contradictive

  • No attendance restrictions on outdoor events and facilities, but two-metre physical distancing must be in place.

If the 2 meter restriction must be in place, how can a venue go to full capacity?

There are two options, if they choose not to go with the Restrictions Exemption Program, the other option is

  • Fully outdoor events and venues have no capacity restrictions (excluding washrooms), but must maintain 2 metres distancing between households or 2 close contact for those living alone.

…agreed mike, but I don’t see how that clause helps stadiums in any way…

Maybe at Commonwealth? but I can't see how they could spread people out if they already have season tickets and then told they have to move from their seats 3 metres away from their neighbors.
But it's likely they go with the option of checking vaccinations

Simple answer to all this nonsense. Get vaccinated , or stay home.

They would have to cancel and refund some tickets...or go with vaccinations
