Miskanawah COVID-19 Re-opening Q and A

Here at Miskanawah, the health, safety, and overall wellness of our communities is of utmost importance. With the new Alberta COVID-19 restrictions, we have come up with a few strategies while also prioritizing safety. Below are some important questions we considered when thinking about the safety of our staff and the families, children, and individuals we serve.
Alberta Update
On February 8, 2022, the Government of Alberta announced its plan to lift public health restrictions.  You can see the full announcement here: COVID-19 info for Albertans | (scroll to the bottom). 
There are 3 Stages: Phase 1 of the plan is currently in effect and includes:Will Miskanawah be returning to in-person programming and activities?
Some in-person programming will be returning and some will not. Please contact the program facilitator to confirm in-person/virtual offerings. However, in-person capacity may apply and all events may still be found online through our Event Calendar and our social media. Please reach out to the event facilitator regarding any questions or concerns you may have.
Will Miskanawah be allowing visits on the Land and in the Lodge?
Yes, both staff and clients are now welcome to partake in Land and Lodge activities.

When I visit the Miskanawah locations, will I be required to wear a mask and go through the COVID-19 screening process?
Masking is NO longer required but COVID-19 symptom screenings ARE REQUIARED. However, Miskanawah strongly encourages folks to wear a mask, maintain distance, and continue proper hand-hygiene. Masks, wipes, and hand-sanitizers are available at both our NE location and Kensington location. If you have any cold-like symptoms and/or are feeling unwell, please stay home until symptoms subside.
