The City’s response to COVID-19

The health and safety of our residents, staff and visitors is our top priority. Learn more about our response to COVID-19 and how this impacts those who live here.

We're here to serve you, just differently

During this time, staff are here to support you by phone or email, as several of our facilities are closed to walk-in traffic. Find out how to apply for a building permit, development permit or book an inspection during COVID-19.

Face coverings and masks

Face coverings are currently not mandatory in Spruce Grove; however, public health officials strongly encourage wearing a face covering or mask to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. 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.

Spruce Grove City Council has also approved a Temporary Mandatory Face Coverings Bylaw that will only be implemented if/when the City reaches the active number of COVID-19 cases that would place it under a “watch” as determined by the Government of Alberta .

Supports and resources


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.

Prevent the spread

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.

Assessment and testing

  • If you have symptoms or known exposure to COVID-19, you must stay home and book a testing appointment online with the AHS assessment tool or call Health Link 811.
  • If you have no symptoms and no known exposure to COVID-19, pharmacies can now provide testing. Visit Alberta Blue Cross to contact a participating pharmacy to arrange a test.
