The City’s Temporary Mandatory Face Coverings Bylaw, was implemented effective 9 a.m. on Friday, Oct. 23, in response to Spruce Grove being placed under a “watch” status by the Province’s Chief Medical Officer of Health.
This means it is now 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 in a public vehicle. Exemptions under the bylaw include children under the age of 10 and those who are not able to wear a face covering due to a mental or physical concern or limitation. A full list of exemptions is available online.
On Oct. 8, the Government of Alberta announced new voluntary public health measures in the Edmonton Zone, which includes Spruce Grove, to respond to rising COVID-19 spread and to protect the health of Albertans. These measures include wearing non-medical face coverings or masks in all indoor work settings, except when alone in work spaces such as offices or cubicles where you can be safely distanced from others or an appropriate barrier is in place.
Members of the public are required to wear a face covering or mask in publicly accessible indoor spaces in all City facilities and when using Spruce Grove Transit.

The City of Spruce Grove has developed a draft recovery framework to assist in helping the community recover from the effects of COVID-19 and return to a sustainable and resilient city. The framework includes three key themes that will be critical to address throughout the recovery: governance, the economy and the community.
Do your part to prevent the spread to protect yourself and others, and to help support a safe relaunch of services and facilities in our community.
