As we welcome our community back to the Convention Centre, we are pleased to provide details about local services and new protocols related to Covid-19.
How you can help
- Maintain physical distance
Allow sufficient space between yourself and others to help reduce the risk. The recommended distance is two metres.
- Wear a face covering
As per the City of Calgary’s Bylaw, staff and guests are required to wear masks in all indoor public spaces, including our Convention Centre.
- Wash or sanitize your hands frequently
Handwashing is the single most effective way to prevent the spread of disease. If you are not able to wash your hands with soap and water, use hand sanitizer instead. You will find multiple hand sanitizing stations available in our facilities for our guests, employees and the public.
- Catch your germs
Use the inside of your elbow or your shoulder to cover your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze.
- Avoid touching your face
As well as frequently washing your hands, remember to keep your hands away from your eyes, ears, nose and mouth.
- Health officials remind us to practice healthy habits
Eat well, exercise daily and get enough rest to support your immune system.
- Avoid shaking hands or touching others
Choose alternative greetings to handshakes and high fives. Instead, try a wave, namaste or bow from an appropriate distance.
- Keep elevators empty
Avoid overcrowding by taking the stairs or escalator whenever possible. When in the elevator, face the wall. Unless you are riding with people who are in your immediate household, limit the number of occupants to two.
- If you’re sick, stay home
If you are experiencing fever, cough, difficulty breathing or other flu-like symptoms, stay away from others and take the COVID-19 self-assessment.
