COVID-19 Step 2 Update

Alberta enters Step 2 starting today, March 1. The following COVID-19 measures will be updated:

  • Any remaining school requirements removed (for example: Kindergarten to grade 6 co-horting).
  • Youth screening activities for entertainment and sport activities removed.
  • Capacity on all large venues and entertainment venues lifted.
  • Indoor and outdoor social gathering limits lifted.
  • Mandatory work-from-home requirements lifted.
  • Provincial mask mandate will be lifted except in high-risk settings, including on public transit, at AHS-operated and contracted facilities, and all continuing care settings.


PRSD is committed to supporting any students or staff who wish to continue to wear masks during school hours.

 

Isolation requirements remain the same until Step 3 is reached. If you test positive or have symptoms not related to a pre-existing condition, you are legally required to isolate as outlined below:

  • Fully vaccinated (2 doses or 1 dose Janssen): Starting the first day of symptoms or positive test, isolate for a minimum of 5 days or until symptoms resolve, whichever is longer. Following isolation, wear a mask at all times when around others outside of home for up to 5 more days (10 total). This means you must eat or drink alone, away from others.
  • Not fully vaccinated (1 dose or less): Starting the first day of symptoms or positive test, isolate for 10 days or until symptoms resolve, whichever is longer.
  • If you test negative and have symptoms, you should still stay home and away from others until symptoms resolve.
