The City of Leduc and Stage 3 in the Open for Summer Plan

Monday, June 28, 2021

When Stage 3 of the province’s Open for Summer Plan takes effect on July 1, many of the restrictions that have been in place to prevent the spread of COVID-19 will be lifted. City staff and local residents are encouraged to review the plan for details and continue following all recommendations from Alberta Health Services. 

The health and safety of our community and staff has been, and will continue to be, our highest priority. 

As part of Stage 3, the province has lifted its mask mandate (with the exception of continuing care and acute care centres, 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 as of July 1, wearing a mask in Leduc will no longer be required by the province or municipality in most circumstances. 

“As an eternal optimist I have been looking forward to this moment since the start of the pandemic in early 2020,” says Leduc Mayor Bob Young. “It has been one of the most challenging times for so many of us, but I am incredibly proud of how city staff and all in the community pulled together to prevent the spread, support local businesses and love Leduc.” 

“Your resilience and community spirit are truly inspiring,” Young adds. “While the world around us continues to open back up over the next few months, please remember to be kind, respectful, patient and considerate of each other.”
