if Alberta Health Services identifies a confirmed case of COVID-19 that was infectious while attending an event you organized, AHS will contact you (the event organizer) and direct you to notify all attendees who are considered exposed to COVID-19.
To support event organizers in managing this notification, we - AHS - will provide you with written notification that you will be directed to send to all event attendees, by email, within 24 hours of AHS directing you to do so.
Where email addresses are not available and more rapid email notification is not possible, AHS will continue to make phone calls where necessary. AHS will also continue to directly notify close contacts of cases who were exposed outside of any event.
This change will improve the efficiency of the close contact notification process for events that have high risk of rapid spread of illness, such as sports tournaments, weddings, church socials and other gatherings of 10 or more people.
