Habitat Edmonton’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

(last updated: July 22, 2021)

 

Effective July 1, the Alberta government will lifted mandatory COVID restrictions, including the ban on indoor social gatherings, as well as the general indoor mask mandate. Isolation requirements for suspected and confirmed COVID cases remains in place.

Habitat Edmonton cares deeply about the well-being of our employees, volunteers, and stakeholders. Although masks are no longer required by either the Alberta government or the cities of Edmonton and Grand Prairie or Strathcona County, Habitat Edmonton encourages that appropriate face coverings/masks are worn inside our facilities by those who feel if it necessary, especially whenever it is not possible to maintain physical distancing of 6’.

We will continue with Habitat Edmonton’s cleaning and disinfection protocols including the use of hand sanitizers; as well the plexi-glass previously installed will remain in place

In addition to proper hygiene, all staff and volunteers of Habitat for Humanity Edmonton complete a daily self assessment to ensure that is safe for them to interact with others.

We continue to monitor this evolving situation and will adapt our protocols under the guidance of local authorities to ensure our staff, volunteers, and the public’s health and safety.
