BILD Alberta is monitoring the government restrictions and is committed to communicating relevant industry information to members.
On June 2nd, BILD Alberta confirmed that once the province enters Stage 2 of the Open for Summer Plan, showhomes can be open to walk-ins but must operate at a maximum of 1/3 capacity while maintaining masking and distancing.
Stage 2: Two weeks after 60% of Albertans 12+ (born in 2009 or earlier) have received at least one dose, and hospitalizations are below 500 and declining. Expected to be in effect June 10 but await an official announcement from the Government of Alberta.
Until the government moves to Stage 2, showhomes are treated the same as a realtor hosting an open house. See post below for more info.
The following are not BILD Alberta mandates. These are the directives provided by the Government of Alberta. It is recommended that all members review the latest government restrictions, found here, to determine any potential implications on your operations.If you violate a public health order, you may be subject to fines and other enforcement measures.
