Alberta Health Services has closed GraceLife Church in Parkland County west of Edmonton. The church has been at the centre of a prolonged battle over COVID-19 enforcement and officials say it will remain closed until it can “demonstrate the ability to comply” with provincial health restrictions.
Albertans who need time off work to get a COVID-19 vaccine can use the personal and family responsibility leave introduced by the province last year, a government spokesperson says.
Residents of a hamlet in northern Alberta say they are in desperate need of a birthing centre and are awaiting details from the province on what a promised birthing centre in the region will look like.
Hundreds of people demonstrated Sunday outside the shuttered GraceLife Church west of Edmonton.
