County Logo

At 4pm today, Red Deer County will move to Enhanced Status on the Provincial Relaunch Status Map. This includes all communities within the County’s limits except for the City of Red Deer and the Town of Sylvan Lake (it should be noted those communities are already on enhanced status). 

Effective November 13, areas under Enhanced Status will now have additional measures in place, including:


Mandatory measures:

  • Restaurants, bars, lounges and pubs must stop liquor sales by 10pm and close by 11pm - applies to Class A, B or C licences (Nov 13-27).
  • 15-person limit on social and family gatherings - indoors and outdoors - where people are mixing and mingling.
  • 50-person limit on indoor and outdoor wedding ceremonies and funeral services.


Voluntary measures:

  • No social gatherings inside your home or outside of your community. Instead, socialize outdoors or in structured settings, like restaurants or other business that are subject to legal limits and take steps to prevent transmission.
  • Limit of 3 cohorts: your core household, your school, and one other sport or social cohort. Young children who attend child care can be part of 4 cohorts.
  • Wear a mask in all indoor work settings, except when alone in a workspace or an appropriate barrier is in place.
  • Employers in office settings should implement measures to reduce the number of employees in the workplace at one time.
  • Faith-based gatherings limited to 1/3 capacity at one time.


Additional information on the new measures can be found here, along with guidance on gatherings and cohorts, as well as masking best practices.
