Health & Safety Protocols

This outdoor-only experience will be planned in accordance with current Government of Alberta public health recommendations and restrictions.

Outdoor-only entertainment
The Summer Fun Midway will be an outdoor-only experience. The Edmonton EXPO Centre will not be accessible to event attendees except for in the event of an emergency.

As of July 1, masks are no longer mandated by bylaw in the City of Edmonton. However, masks or face coverings are still strongly encouraged for all event attendees, and will be provided on site courtesy of Unbelts.

Physical distancing
Maintaining a physical distance of two meters from others outside of your group cohort is strongly encouraged. Ground markings will be placed in high-traffic areas throughout the midway to encourage physical distancing.

Cleaning and disinfection
Explore Edmonton will continue to implement enhanced cleaning and disinfection protocols in accordance with standards of our GBAC STAR Facility Accreditation. North American Midway Entertainment will regularly clean and disinfect all high touch areas including rides and game equipment.

Personal health
Anyone currently experiencing any known symptoms of COVID-19 or who has recently been in close contact with a confirmed case of COVID-19 is asked to remain home. Additional hand sanitization stations will be placed throughout the midway and we encourage guests to regularly wash their hands. Health & safety signage will be placed at each entrance to the midway.

Staff health
We continue to take measures that support a healthy workforce. All Explore Edmonton staff are subject to enhanced health screening including temperature and symptom checks upon arrival to work.

Pre-purchase tickets and parking
To reduce touch points and lineups, we encourage all attendees to purchase tickets and parking in advance. Due to capacity control, advance Ride-All-Day tickets will be redeemable for the date of purchase.
