Habitat for Humanity Edmonton is standing strong with our community during the COVID-19 crisis. We care deeply about the safety of our volunteers, donors, partners, staff, partner families and our ReStore customers, and have reached the following decisions that are effective as of March 19, 2020:

  • All Habitat build sites, ReStores, and offices will be closed to volunteers until further notice.
  • All workshops and events are cancelled until further notice.
  • All four Edmonton ReStores and our Grande Prairie ReStore have modified business practices until MAY 19, 2020.
  • On May 19, the stores will be open with new temporary hours: 9:30 am – 4:30 pm, Tue-Sat (closed Sundays and Mondays).

All staff who remain on site will exercise diligence in the following ways:

  • Social distancing: keeping 2 meter distance from others.
  • Frequent hand-washing and/or use of an alcohol-based hand rub.
  • Avoiding touching eyes, nose or mouth (especially with unwashed hands).
  • Covering mouth and nose when coughing or sneezing.
  • Immediately disposing of any used tissues and immediately washing hands afterwards.
  • Cleaning and disinfecting frequently touched objects and surfaces (such as doorknobs and electronic devices).
  • Staying home if sick at all (COVID-19 symptoms or other).
  • Avoiding public transportation or ride shares.
  • Staying home if they have been in contact with people who have traveled internationally within 14 days of their return.
