As of Wednesday, September 22, the City adopted the Government of Alberta’s Restriction Exemption Program (REP) for certain City-owned facilities.

“We hope REP will provide our residents and visitors with the utmost protection and the highest quality of service to as many people as possible when using city facilities,” said Chief Executive Officer Tom Goulden.

REP will be implemented at Glenn Hall Centennial Arena, Heritage Park and the Stony Plain Community Center.

To enter facilities participating in the REP, people aged 12 and over must provide proof of vaccination, medical exemption, or a privately obtained COVID-19 test showing a negative result in the past 72 hours.

All other City-owned facilities will adhere to the province’s latest public health restrictions. These include limiting the capacity to 1/3 occupancy of the fire prevention code and only allowing groups of household members or those living alone with two close contacts. No proof of vaccination will be required. These facilities include the Municipal Office, Stony Plain Public Library, Community and Social Development Office (formerly FCSS), Parkland RCMP Detachment and Youth Center.

Wearing a mask remains compulsory in all indoor facilities, whether or not they are vaccinated.

Proof of vaccination can be downloaded from and additional information on current public health measures related to COVID-19 is available on the Government of Alberta website. More details will be published on the City’s Facebook, Instagram, Twitter accounts as well as on the City’s website.

“There are still more details to be worked out as we prepare the proceedings. Our staff do their best to adapt to these new demands. We ask for your patience and cooperation, ”said Goulden.
