Alberta's Relaunch Strategy
The Alberta Government has announced their plan to safely relaunch the economy from COVID-19.

The GPRC wants to echo the the message from the Government of Alberta: "We must ensure the sacrifices we have already made are not wasted. To be successful, we must stay vigilant to slow the spread: follow public health measures, practice physical distancing and good hygiene, and continue acting responsibly."

The plan to move forward requires careful monitoring and  respecting all guidelines  outlined by the chief medical officer of health.

Enhanced infection prevention and control measures, including physical distancing requirements of at least 2 metres, will remain in place throughout all stages.
