COVID-19 Reopening Guidance and Resources

As of today, most of Alberta has moved into stage one of Alberta’s relaunch plan. Below we have outlined some guidance and resources so businesses can reopen confidently while protecting Albertans.
Prior to reopening:
  • Ensure your business is allowed to resume operations in the staged relaunch plan.
  • All workplaces are expected to develop and implement policies and procedures around COVID-19.
  • A completed relaunch considerations template must be completed and posted in your workplace within seven days of reopening to the public. We recommend using the workplace guidance for business owners document and the sector-specific guidance to complete the template.
  • Hold a reopening training session for staff that includes new guidelines and policies.
  • Ensure you have an adequate supply of personal protective equipment (PPE).
  • Print and display help prevent the spread posters to create awareness.
  • Announce your reopening via your social channels and an email blast. Include your hours and any changes to operations. Tag the Chamber in your social post and we will gladly share the good news!
For comprehensive guidance please visit Alberta Biz Connect.
Alberta Health Services (AHS) is hosting two virtual community conversations to provide the business community with updated information regarding the pandemic and relaunch:
Today: 11:00am – Noon
Friday: 2:00 – 3:00pm
Register online here.
For up-to-date information please refer to our COVID-19 resource page and ourFacebook page.Import

Important announcement from Red Deer Festival of Trees

Published on

Dear Festival Supporter,
Once again, let us take this opportunity to thank you for your past sponsorship support. For the last 26 years, Festival of Trees has provided more than $16 million to Red Deer Regional Hospital Centre thanks in part to your generosity.
While it was a difficult decision, Festival of Trees has been closed to the public due to the current rise of COVID-19 cases in our province however we are still moving forward with a virtual Tree Room, online Silent Auction and our Festival Virtual Fete.
We know that this will come as an enormous disappointment, but we need to lead by example and prioritize the health and safety of our community, guests, sponsors, volunteers, and staff.
We remain committed to enhancing healthcare in Central Alberta. Although Festival of Trees is closed to the public, we are offering a number of ways for our community to participate virtually while supporting our goal of raising funds for electronic fetal monitoring for Red Deer Regional Hospital Centre and other care centres in Central Alberta.
We will showcase the Tree Room and sponsor banners virtually, through Facebook Live and our other social media channels. Follow us on Facebook at to be notified when we go live.
You will be able to view packages and bid from any computer or mobile device:
We are grateful for your commitment to Festival of Trees, and most importantly our healthcare. We thank everyone who had made plans to attend this year’s Festival of Trees and we look forward to a time where we can gather again.
If you have questions or concerns, please email [email protected].
With sincerest regards,
Red Deer Regional Health Foundation
