City of RD - Facility REP Update - Oct 7

Government of Alberta updates youth screening requirements under the Provincial Restrictions Exemption Program

(Red Deer, Alberta)

On Wednesday, October 6, the Government of Alberta, in coordination with Alberta Health Services, provided additional direction regarding youth participation (12-17 years) in the Restrictions Exemption Program (REP).

Effective Tuesday, October 12, in adherence to the provincial REP, The City will begin screening all youth aged 12-17 when participating in combined adult/youth activities.

This means, if a 12-17 year old is participating in an activity where individuals 18 years and over may also be participating, proof of vaccination, medical exemption or negative COVID-19 test will be required from all participants, including the youth.

This change will impact our sport rental groups and most drop-in programs such as drop-in skating, swimming and fieldhouse use as well as many fitness programs. Over the course of the next couple of days and weeks, The City will be adding youth-only drop-in opportunities at our facilities. These opportunities will be listed online when available at

The REP allows for 12-17 year olds participating in youth-only programming to continue without proof of vaccination, medical exemption or negative Covid-19 test.

More information about the Restriction Exemption Program, including acceptable proof of vaccination, medical exemption or negative test result, is available here:

Further detail is also available here: Requirements for the Restriction Exemption Program.
