Restrictions Exemption Program

Provincewide, vaccine-eligible Albertans and visitors to Alberta are required to provide government-issued proof of immunization, a negative privately paid COVID-19 test from within the previous 72 hours or valid proof of medical exemption to access a variety of participating social, recreational and discretionary events and businesses.

  • Businesses and service providers who implement this program can immediately and without restriction serve any individual who:

o From Sept. 20 to Oct. 25, has valid proof of a single dose of vaccine received two or more weeks before the time of service; or

o From Oct. 26 and beyond, has proof of a complete vaccine series with the second dose received two weeks or more before the time of service; or

o Has documentation of a medical exemption from a physician or nurse practitioner; or

o Has proof of a recent (within the previous 72 hours) negative COVID-19 test (either PCR or Rapid Test).

 The test cannot be from Alberta Health Services or Alberta Precision Laboratories.

  • Those under the age of 12 do not need to provide proof of immunization or a negative test to enter a participating business.
  • This program does not apply to businesses or entities that need to be accessed for daily living. A full list of in-scope and out-of-scope businesses is available online.
  • Businesses that implement the Restrictions Exemption Program must continue to follow indoor mandatory masking requirements.
  • Staff are not required to be vaccinated just masked.
  • Albertans can now access a convenient card-sized proof of vaccination easily and quickly on without creating an online account. The paper copy of the immunization record received at your vaccination appointment can also be used as proof of vaccination.
