COVID-19 Information for Beaumont
The health, safety and well-being of our residents, staff and visitors is our city’s priority.
Here is a collection of information and resources regarding the COVID-19 pandemic, including updates from the Government of Alberta, Government of Canada and the City of Beaumont.
Alberta Government Health Measures
Effective March 1, the Government of Alberta is lifting most COVID-19 health measures as case numbers and hospitalizations decline.
The City of Beaumont does not have a mask requirement. Under provincial rules, masks are still required on public transit, facilities operated by Alberta Health Services, and all continuing care settings.
Isolation is still legally required for people who have COVID-19 symptoms or test positive. Learn more about isolation requirements.
For full details on these measures, visit the Alberta government's website.
COVID-19 vaccines are available to all Albertans ages 12 and up. Appointments and walk-in options are available in Beaumont and Edmonton. For more information about the vaccine safety, eligibility and to find a location for your shot, visit the Alberta government’s website.
Prevent the Spread
Vaccines greatly reduce the spread of COVID-19 and help prevent you from getting severely sick if you do get infected, however, we continue to encourage the community and our employees to practise healthy hygiene habits, including:
- Wash your hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds
- Stay home if you are sick
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands
- Do not share water bottles or similar containers
- Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash
- Routinely clean frequently touched surfaces and objects
New information about COVID-19 is being shared on a regular basis on the Government of Alberta website.
