The Alberta government just announced the Restriction Exemption Program beginning Monday September 20, 2021.
The Wood Restaurant will follow this program which means we will require all guests to show proof of vaccination or a negative rapid test result to enter The Wood Restaurant indoors or on the patio.
Our participation in this program allows our businesses to operate as usual.
Here is a helpful overview of how the program will work:
1. To enter our restaurants, people ages 12 and older can provide proof of vaccination or documentation of a medical exemption.
a. Proof of Vaccination - we will accept both paper and digital proof of vaccination from any accredited organization.
Sept. 20 to Oct. 25: proof of a single dose is considered acceptable as long as the dose was given more than 2 weeks before the time of entry.
After Oct. 25: proof of double vaccination is required.
b. Proof of Negative Test - tests must be privately-paid COVID-19 PCR or rapid tests completed within 72 hours.
Tests must not be from Alberta Health Services or Alberta Precision Laboratories.
2. Masks remain mandatory in all indoor settings. At restaurants, guests must be masked when entering and exiting the venue. Masks are not required while a guest is actively eating or drinking.
Other than the above two points, there are no additional restrictions on group size, venue capacity, the number of guests seated per table, or alcohol service timing.
