Alberta’s government will remove province-wide health measures in three stages as vaccine targets are reached and hospitalizations decline.
Alberta’s Open for Summer Plan provides a three-stage road map to lifting health restrictions and safely getting back to normal.
Stage 2: In Effect as of Thursday June 10, 2021
Stage 3: Two weeks after 70 per cent of Albertans age 12-plus have received at least one dose of vaccine. (Scheduled to go into effect July 1st)
Additional details on all restrictions and measures in place will be released prior to each step. Albertans can track the province’s immunization progress on alberta.ca.
Provincial COVID-19 transmission will continue to be monitored throughout the reopening. If required, a reopening step may be paused to respond to COVID-19 transmission trends at regional or provincial levels.
Sustained reopening will depend on Albertans getting fully vaccinated with two doses during the summer months to prevent future spread of COVID-19.
Alberta’s government is responding to the COVID-19 pandemic by protecting lives and livelihoods with precise measures to bend the curve, sustain small businesses and protect Alberta’s health-care system.
SYMPTOMS of COVID-19
Symptoms of COVID-19 are similar to those for influenza or other respiratory illnesses. If you have any of these core symptoms, you must isolate for at least 10 days from the start of your symptoms or until they are gone, whichever is longer, or until you test negative for COVID-19.
If you are not tested for COVID-19, you MUST self-isolate for 10 days following the start of these symptoms or until the symptoms go away (which ever is longer).
Any symptom: Stay home and limit contact with others until symptoms are gone. Testing is recommended.
1 symptom: Stay home for 24 hours, get tested if symptoms don’t improve.
2+ symptoms: Get tested and stay home until well or test is negative.
The following procedures are in place at the Suncor Energy Centre for the Performing Arts to ensure we are complying with COVID-19 guidelines and reducing the chance of spreading the virus:
General COVID-19 Information
There are two important ways to prevent and control respiratory viruses in community school settings:
The first is for community members who are ill with respiratory illness symptoms (fever, cough, fatigue, and/or muscle aches) to stay home and not attend scheduled activities. If you (or your child) is not feeling well, we ask that you stay home to recover.
The second way to prevent and control respiratory viruses is the consistent practice of good respiratory etiquette and hand hygiene. Good respiratory etiquette includes covering the mouth and nose during coughing or sneezing with a tissue or a flexed elbow and disposing of used tissues in a plastic-lined waste container, followed by hand hygiene. Hand hygiene is the washing of hands with plain soap and water, which is effective at removing visible soil as well as viruses. We are enhancing our communication to community members about hand-washing, sneeze/cough etiquette, and preventing illness – including new signage and supplies within our facility.
Cleaning and Disinfecting
Regular cleaning and disinfecting of high-touch surfaces (e.g., door handles, water fountain push buttons) helps prevent the transmission of viruses. Our facility has asked our custodial services to focus attention on daily cleaning and disinfection of high-touch surfaces at all of our school sites.
Participants should not be sharing food, utensils, dishes, and water bottles or drink containers. Although this practice is important for preventing exposures to allergens, it is equally important in reducing virus transmission between people.
A new virus such as the COVID-19 can create anxiety and be difficult for people to understand, especially if someone they know is sick, or they see or hear troubling messages on the radio, internet or television. It is normal for people to feel worried and nervous and have questions.
You can support your family by reassuring them about their personal safety and health:
Limit their access to news and online stories about the issue.
Maintain a normal routine unless otherwise advised by an authority.
Encourage them to talk to you about their concerns.
Reassure them they are safe.
Advise them of steps they can take to stay healthy:
~Wash hands regularly with soap and water for at least 20 seconds (sing the ABC’s to measure time), especially after coughing or sneezing.
~Cough and sneeze into arm or tissue.
~Stay home if they are not feeling well.
~Keep hands away from face and mouth.
~Stay healthy by eating healthy foods, keeping physically active, and getting enough sleep.
Contact 8-1-1 (Health Link) or your health care provider for questions about your personal health situation.
Please note: SECPA does not have the authority to make public health decisions. If steps are taken in relation to a public health concern, it is at the direction of the Alberta Health Services and local health authorities. SECPA, in conjunction with Fort McMurray Catholic Schools, is in regular communication with Alberta Education, Alberta Health Services, and school divisions across the province. At this time, school divisions have not been directed to take steps in relation to coronavirus and SECPA will follow the lead of the Fort McMurray Catholic School Division.
