Following the Government of Alberta's public health guidelines, all visitors must continue to follow indoor mandatory masking requirements and physical distancing guidelines. People aged 12 and over must be able to show one of the following at each visit:

  • proof of vaccination
    • partial vaccination (one dose) accepted September 20 to October 25 if received 2 weeks before time of service
    • full vaccination (two doses) required after October 25
  • proof of a privately-paid negative PCR or rapid test within 72 hours of service (tests from AHS or Alberta Precision Laboratories not allowed)
  • documentation of a formal medical exemption as outlined by the Government of Alberta

This, along with other COVID-19 protocols and operational changes, will continue to be made as we focus on ensuring the health and safety of the community.

The City of Lethbridge continues to work with its partner operators and user groups on their COVID-19 protocols as provincial public health guidelines continue to evolve. Residents are encouraged to plan ahead and review facility entry requirements before each visit.
