Masking Requirements

The Government of Alberta has announced that as of March 1st, 2022, masks are no longer required (except for high-risk facilities) More details are found here.

As per the lifting of the mask mandates, the Town of Taber will not require masks in any of our facilities as of March 1st, 2022, though citizens are welcome to wear them if that makes them comfortable.

The Town would like to remind citizens that regardless of your views on masking, being kind is encouraged at all times. Please be courteous and non-judgmental to business owners, workers, and anyone you encounter in public, regardless of your viewpoint. Some may feel more comfortable wearing a mask, whereas other may feel the opposite.

Businesses have the right to establish their own policies on masking within their own private places of business.

As Dr. Hinshaw says: “we are all in this together” and we will get through this pandemic together as a community.
