Rogers Place in Edmonton
EDMONTON -- The list of events postponed or cancelled in Edmonton due to COVID-19 is growing.
On Sunday night, the Alberta government announced it would cancel classes at all K-12 and post-secondary schools, as well as close daycares until further notice.
Events with 50 or more attendees or events with international participants, critical infrastructure staff, seniors or other high-risk populations should also be cancelled, health officials said.
Post-secondary campuses will remain open to students who need to use facilities, but classes will be delivered online.
Licensed child care, out-of-school care and preschool programs in the province are now closed, but the province said approved day homes would be exempt because they care for fewer than seven children at a time.
Places of worship including churches and mosques are also now being urged to cancel services.
CTV News Edmonton will update this list as centres are closed and events are postponed or cancelled.
