COVID UPDATE: Updated Mandatory Restrictions

The additional restrictions come into effect for regions with at least 50 cases per 100,000 people, and at least 30 active cases. The additional restrictions apply to Spruce Grove. All residents are encouraged to do their part to stop the spike.
The health and safety of our residents, staff and visitors is our top priority. We are committed to community safety and well-being and will continue to follow Government of Alberta measures to limit the spread of COVID-19.

- The latest mandatory measures implemented by the Province of Alberta supersede all municipal bylaws, including the City’s Temporary Mandatory Face Coverings Bylaw. This means it is now mandatory for members of the public to wear a face covering or mask in all indoor workplaces, except when working alone in an office or a safely distanced cubicle or an appropriate barrier is in place. Additionally, it is still mandatory for members of the public to wear a face covering or mask at all times while in an indoor, enclosed, or substantially enclosed public place or public vehicle, as per our bylaw.
The City is temporarily allowing recreational vehicles (RVs) to be parked on City streets or private property to help individuals self-isolate due to COVID-19.
