Province Wide Mandatory Mask Policy
The Alberta NDP is calling on Jason Kenney and the UCP government to implement a mandatory mask policy for all public indoor spaces in all regions.
There many communities are on the enhanced list that currently do not have mask policies in place. Implementing a provincial mask policy for all regions will protect our healthcare system in rural areas and smaller communities that currently do not have a mask mandate.
This UCP government has already gone out of their way to undermine health care in rural and remote parts of Alberta. I’m very concerned that if we don’t reduce cases quickly, these centres will be completely overrun. At the end of the day, it’s a fairly simple thing we can do. Masks reduce community spread and don’t hurt the economy- Rachel Notley
