Are residents required to wear a mask in the City of Leduc?
As of July 1, wearing a mask is no longer required by the province (with the exception of continuing care and acute care centres, in public transit, taxis and ride sharing, and inside fire halls/ambulances). In Leduc, City Council suspended the municipal mask bylaw indefinitely on March 8, 2021. This means that wearing a mask in Leduc is no longer required by the province or municipality in most circumstances.

Some business owners may also choose to require their patrons to continue masking. This is at their discretion and is their responsibility to enforce.
Doesn’t the City of Leduc have a bylaw on face coverings?
In December 2020, the Government of Alberta made face coverings mandatory across the province. This superseded Leduc’s (or any municipal) bylaw and on March 8, 2021, Leduc City Council suspended the municipal mask bylaw indefinitely. This means that wearing a mask in Leduc is no longer required by the province or municipality in most circumstances.
Why are people still wearing masks?
As part of Stage 3, wearing a mask is no longer a legal requirement in most circumstances; however, some people may continue to choose to wear a mask in a variety of settings. This is a personal choice. Whether you choose to wear a mask or not, please remember to be kind, considerate and supportive of one another.
I own a business in Leduc and want patrons to continue to wear a mask. How can the City of Leduc help?
As part of Stage 3, wearing a mask is no longer a legal requirement in most circumstances, therefore asking patrons to continue to wear a mask while in a place of business is now at the discretion of the business owner. As such, enforcement will also be the responsibility of the business. It is important that we all remember to be kind, considerate and supportive of one another.
