There is confusion on when this order, as it applies to sport, begins and ends.
The sport-specific restrictions begin November 27th and run for at least three weeks, which is December 18th.
In your planning, you should not assume these restrictions are guaranteed to end December 18th. Depending on how Albertans respond, the restrictions may be extended.
Regarding the Premier’s mention of sports being permitted to apply for exemptions, which we have had more questions about today, we can confirm that these exemptions are not meant for the average sport program.
In fact, now that written information is available, we can see the standards to obtain an exemption are exceptionally high, as one would expect with the health outcomes our province desires, and we reiterate Ringette Alberta will not be applying for an exemption. Please stay connected to one another and stay healthy.
