COVID-19 Update

Facility Update - September 18

On September 15, in response to increasing COVID-19 cases, the Government of Alberta presented two options for continued operations for businesses in the province effective September 20. 


These options are:

  • Implement the Restrictions Exemption Program requiring proof of vaccination or negative rapid test result to continue operating as usual, or
  • Follow the extensive capacity and operating restrictions as outlined in the Alberta government COVID-19 public health actions. 


Based on the information provided by the Government of Alberta, at this time and in an effort to provide maximum access to facilities, the Syncrude Sport and Wellness Centre (SSWC) will be implementing a Restrictions Exemption Program for participating spaces.

Access to programs and services offered at SSWC will become subject to proof of vaccination or proof of negative test beginning September 20, 2021. General access to facilities is not subject to proof of vaccination or proof of negative test (“general access” means publicly accessible areas – concourses, spectator seating, etc.).

Proof of vaccination or proof of negative test will be limited to patrons accessing programs and services impacted by restrictions outlined on the Government website.


For proof of negative test:

To enter spaces participating in the Restrictions Exemption Program, people aged 12 and older can show proof of a negative test result:

  • 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.


For proof of vaccination:

  • 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 service.
  • After Oct. 25: proof of double vaccination is required.
