Dr Deena Hinshaw spoke of the importance of Remembrance Day in her update yesterday saying, "Remembrance Day is, of course, an important time where Canadians come together to honour the service and sacrifice of those who served, and continue to serve, our country."

She also reminded Albertans to stay safe. "I’d also like to remind Albertans attending any ceremonies in-person to be mindful of the physical distancing, masking and capacity requirements in place to prevent the spread of COVID-19. And as always, if you have even minor symptoms, please stay home."

Alberta's top doctor also spoke of being mindful of the restrictions that may be in place at various venues. "Please also make sure to check ahead to see if the venue is participating in the Restrictions Exemption Program, and if so, make sure to have your proof of vaccination, privately paid for negative test, or medical exemption handy."
