Since funeral homes must follow the new city vaccine passport bylaw and the AB restriction exemption program, and since they must check attendees at a funeral, there are now no restrictions on the numbers attending a funeral as long as those attending meet one these requirements:
*12 years and over must show proof of being fully vaccinated or have received one vaccination at least two weeks prior to the event
* OR 12 years and over must show proof of a negative COVID 19 rapid test taken within 72 hours of the event. The test must be a privately paid Health Canada approved rapid antigen, rapid PCR or lab based PCR completed within the previous 72 hours. Test results must be a written or printed copy–not a photo of the results.
* OR . Proof of a valid medical exemption that is the original signed letter from a physician.
* Masks indoors are still required unless eating or drinking.
There will be a reception afterwards. Saturday, October 2nd, 2 pm McInnis & Holloway at 5008 Elbow Dr. SW (across from the Britannia Shopping Centre).
