COVID-19 Staged Resumption Part 2 – July 6
The Provincial Court of Alberta is very mindful of the need to expand in-person access to the Court, while at the same time protecting the health and safety of courts users and the public, and to contain the spread of COVID-19. Therefore, effective July 6, 2020, we are increasing the number of criminal, family and youth, and civil matters that can be heard in-person at base point locations, during the COVID-19 pandemic.

- physical distancing and monitoring of same;
- wearing of masks and other Personal Protection Equipment (PPE);
