The health and safety of our clients, guests and staff is our number one priority. We also must align our approach with the Province’s and the City’s efforts to protect the larger community from Covid – 19 spread.
Fort Edmonton Management Company has been monitoring the COVID-19 situation since it started to unfold, seeking guidance in the responses of the City of Edmonton, Alberta Health Services and Health Canada. Subsequent to the Alberta Government’s March 12, 2020 announcement and the City of Edmonton’s response with this evolving health threat, it is recommended that no gatherings of 250 or more be hosted across the province, and no gatherings over 50 or more where there is a vulnerable individual or an international visitor take place.
Considering these recommendations, Fort Edmonton Park will be closed to all public activity in the park for the next 30 days. As such, we are cancelling all private events booked to take place at the park starting March 13, 2020 until April 13th, after which we will assess the situation on a weekly basis. This includes: booked business meetings, corporate events, Foundation activity and private events (ie. weddings, birthdays etc.).
This has been a difficult decision, but the health and safety of our clients, guests, staff and our community are of critical importance to us. We want to ensure that clients and guests enjoy their time at the park and are comfortable in their setting and are not exposed to any potential health risk, or carry any risk into the community.
We will continue to monitor the situation as it evolves and will share updated information to our clients with private event bookings. We recommend that you stay informed with reliable sources (Alberta Health Services and Health Canada).
Like other City of Edmonton facilities, Fort Edmonton Management Company has an obligation and responsibility to function in a safe and secure manner. By taking early action we are doing our part to help stop the transmission of the COVID-19 virus.
