As many of you may have heard, the provincial mask mandate will be re-instated Saturday, September 4th at 8am, for all indoor public spaces. As it was a fairly fast announcement, we have not yet seen anything from the City of Leduc or the LRC, but we do have an update from Hockey Alberta, offering guidance. When I hear of the LRCs specific guidelines, I will email those out as well, however, as a public space, it is safe to assume masks will be mandatory for all people entering, so stating, participating and leaving the LRC.
More information to follow.

Government of Alberta announces face mask mandate
As many will be aware, the Government of Alberta has announced a new masking mandate for the Province of Alberta.
Effective 8 am Saturday, September 4, masks are required to be worn in all public spaces and workplaces in the province.
Until specific details or updates are provided pertaining to team sports, Hockey Alberta is interpreting the mandate as follows:
- Face masks are NOT required by any player on the ice or on the players’ bench.
- Face masks are NOT required by coaches or on-ice officials on the ice surface during sport/
- Face masks ARE required by coaches and team staff while on the bench, and by all penalty/
- Face masks ARE required by everyone while in a dressing room.
Please note: Municipalities and individual facilities may have different interpretations of the new mandate. It is the responsibility of the Member organization or participating team to consult with the municipality or facility and be aware of any municipal and/ or facility-specific health and safety mandates that may differ from Hockey Alberta’s interpretation.
As additional guidance or clarification is made available, Hockey Alberta will provide updates.
Hockey Alberta will share this information via its social media channels over the course of the weekend.
