Members of the public are required to wear a face covering or mask in publicly accessible indoor spaces in all City facilities and when using Spruce Grove Transit.
Spruce Grove City Council has also approved a Temporary Mandatory Face Coverings Bylaw that will only be implemented if/when the City reaches the active number of COVID-19 cases that would place it under a “watch” as determined by the Government of Alberta .

The framework includes three key themes that will be critical to address throughout the recovery: governance, the economy and the community.
