COVID Update - March 8, 2022

CADS Alberta Zone Recommendations

The CADS COVID policy is being recommended for all CADS Alberta Zone programs to the end of the 2021-22 season. We recognize the changes that have come into place through provincial recommendation, but felt that staying the course with our policy to end of season ensures an optimal safety consideration for our members.

Following the season, CADS Alberta will continue to work with our Zones in next steps preparation leading to the 2022-23 season.

Thank you.

CADS Alberta Face Masks

As we continue to stay safe and follow Alberta Health COVID-19 guidelines, masks continue to be part of our daily routine. Our membership that received CADS Alberta masks, that have been distributed through Zone programs, have let us know that friends and members have been asking if they can purchase additional masks. So, we are now making available CADS Alberta masks at $12.00 per mask (includes shipping and tax). Masks are available in Adult, Youth Large and Youth Medium sizes (as shown below).


Programs are offered through CADS Alberta Zones across the province. Go to your Zone contacts for information on local programs, or contact CADS Alberta for information about our programs, and we will help point you to the right contacts.
