*PLEASE NOTE EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY*
Alberta has implemented public health orders restricting mass gatherings to protect Albertans’ health and limit the spread of COVID-19.
A gathering is any event or assembling that brings people together in person, in a single room or single space, indoors or outdoors, at the same time.
Mandatory mass gathering restrictions No gatherings with more than 15 people are allowed, including:
FUNERALS, conferences, workshops, worship gatherings,
family events, such as weddings, social gatherings outdoors
Cancel gatherings with fewer than 15 people if the event:
*includes any attendees travelling from outside of Canada
*has, as its focus, attendees that are members of critical infrastructure or critical service roles (e.g. healthcare workers, first responders, electric/power workers, telecommunications)
*includes attendees from demographic groups at greater risk of severe disease, such as people 60 years of age or older and individuals with chronic medical conditions.
*Participation in activities that promote disease transmission (e.g. singing, cheering, close contact, sharing food or beverages, buffet style meals) is in a space that does not allow for recommended social distancing (at least 6 feet between attendees).
If you violate this public health order and proceed to hold an event with more than 15 attendees, you may be subject to a fine.
As communities around the world are struggling with the Coronavirus (COVID-19) we wanted to reassure you that the health and safety of our client families, employees and anyone entering into our funeral home is our first priority. At Mission View Funeral Chapel our staff are following strict hygiene protocol. We will continue to welcome anyone into our facility. However, if you have been out of the country or do not feel well we ask that you refrain from coming and call us instead. We will make every effort to accommodate your needs by phone and email. Following the guidelines of our association we will refrain from gatherings of more than 15 people. As to respect the needs of our client families we will continue to encourage funerals for close family members and invited guests. Anyone else wishing to attend a funeral can either call our office for family approval or are encouraged to express their sympathy online through our website, Facebook page or email. Through this difficult time we want to thank you in advance for your understanding and especially to the front-line healthcare workers who are working tirelessly on this effort.
