Alberta allows indoor play centres to re-open

The choice was made as winter is around the corner

Dr. Deena Hinshaw, Alberta's chief medical officer of health, says the province is following B.C., Ontario and Saskatchewan and is allowing indoor children's play areas to reopen.

The health order, which went into effect Wednesday, allows indoor recreation, entertainment and play centres to resume operations as long as public health guidances are observed.

Hinshaw said on twitter "Play is important to the healthy development of a child, but as it gets colder, opportunities can be harder to come by. Effective today, indoor children’s play areas can operate, provided they follow specific public health guidance, including enhanced cleaning & monitoring."
